 l^gislafiv  ' Library  fe **��������>  90.8  "������ B-C V8V  ��� "�����-��� v��v 1x4  Gidsoiio to protect Gospel Rock  by Dave Fraser  In an effort to keep the  Gospel Rock waterfront accessible to the public Gibsons town  Council introduced a zoning  amendment Tuesday which  would designate as park all land  below the road adjacent to the  Gower Point development.  "It's a way of assuring  residents and the public that  whatever happens the waterfront will remain as park," said  Mayor Diane Strom, who exercised her prerogative as mayor  to reintroduce by-law 555-28,  which was defeated by council  January 16.  The by-law would have  rezoned the scenic area from R4  to Rl, permitting developer  Haydn Killam to build 160  single family dwellings, with  townhouses to follow.  Alderman Ken Collins said  although he agreed with the  aesthetics of the amendment (he  seconded the motion) he said it  could be a dangerous political  move for the town to start controlling what can be done with  private property.  But Strom countered criticisms that designating the area  as park would effectively  devalue the property. She said  the amendment had been drawn  up in consultation with the  developer and also meets the requirements of the town's Official Community Plan.  "I don't think we're  overstepping our bounds or being antagonistic. It wasn't  meant to be," Strom said.  In a recent letter to Gibsons  Council the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) board  raised several concerns relating  to the Gospel Rock development, one of them being the extreme importance of the recreational attributes to the community, as recognized in the  Gibsons Official Community  Plan.  The plan states that high  priority must be given to obtaining as much of the Gospel Rock  waterfront and parkland as  possible for public use. Included  is the peak of a promontory  which could serve as the site of  an eventual 'look-out'.  Although commending the  SCRD for its concerns council  took exception to the board's  suggestions that the Town of  Gibsons may need outside help  in dealing with the Gospel Rock  development.  "It is a matter of simple  record that no other jurisdiction  on the Sunshine Coast can equal  the extent of development controls which the Town of Gibsons has established and can bring to bear on the Gospel Rock  proposal," explained Gibsons  Planner Rob Buchan in his  report to council February 6.  He said no other item figures  as prominently as does Gospel  Rock in the Town's Official  Community Plan of 1985 and  plan amendments made in 1988.  Buchan pointed out that the  town has at its disposal a very  powerful Subdivision and  Development Control By-Law  adopted last December, and a  by-law to control tree cutting in  areas of environmental sensitivity, with the easterly slope of  Gospel Rock being in the  forefront.  Buchan also took issue with  the SCRD's concerns about  flooding in the area and the  regional board's suggestion thai  the town "investigate its ability  to require drainage structures  outside of its boundaries to deal  with this problem."  The SCRD suggested a joint  effort be made between the  developer, the town and the  Ministry of Transportation and  Highways to deal with drainage  problems in the area before  rezoning is granted.  Buchan said, as the town's  Approval Officer for the past 12  years, he felt capable of dealing  with the approval of a 70-acre  parcel.  He noted that "the re- j  quirements of the Municipal  Subdivision and Development  Control By-law are far in excess  of those of the Ministry of  Transportation and Highways."  The Sunshine  i  25' per copy on news stands  February 12,1990     Volume 44     Issue 7  No agreement  in theatre dispute  by Dave Fraser  Gibsons Elementary School students enjoyed a winter carnival last week in appropriate snowy  weather. Symbol of the festival was Monsieur Carnaval, a seven-foot snowman who is alleged to come  alive for 10 days every February.  -Kent ShrrirJin photo  SCRD concerned about  dumping in the ocean  by Caryl Worden  The SCRD will send a  representative to Surrey in  March to assure that the Sunshine Coast does not become a  dump site of low level radioactive wastes.  In response to a letter received from the Surrey Siting Task  Force at the board meeting  Thursday, February 8, SCRD  Director Jim Gurney pointed  out that a lack of representation  from the Sunshine Coast may  leave Ihe area open as a suggested dump site.  Surrey is currently the storage  site for 4000 cubic metres of  low-level radioactive wastes,  and when the municipality requested that the niobium ore  slag be moved, the provincial  government set up the Siting  Task Force.  Although the letter, sent to all  BC Municipalities, stressed that  "the Task Force intends lo use  as its basic premise the voluntary   participation   of  com  munities (as a site)," Gurney  said that in view of the fact that  Howe Sound is an official  federal dumping site, local input  should be made to protect the  Sound.  Director Brett McGillivray  agreed, and volunteered to attend March 3 saying; "The  ocean is a jurisdictional hole.  It's not covered by any  municipality or regional district.  And they're dumping all kinds  of stuff. We should have someone there."  Garbage dlepoeal  debate at Davie Bay  by Caryl Worden  The garbage issue on the  Davis Bay waterfront has risen  once again, with the Davis  Bay/Wilson Creek Community  Association sending a letter to  the SCRD regarding the dump-  sters "being an affront to the  eyes in an otherwise scenic  area."  Director Jim Gurney pointed  out that while it may seem an  inappropriate place to have  dumpsters, the garbage trucks  pass bv there every day and that  the receptacles are there for use  by beach users and the travelling public.  The association's alternatives  included removing garbage bins  entirely, replacing the large  dumpsters with smaller receptacles, or providing some sort of  screen for any garbage bins on  the beach area.  Since the regional district  pays for the receptacles, "it  would save us a lot of money if  we took them out of there,"  Gurney said. "But the alternative is that the garbage gets  spread along the highway."  Gurney and Sechelt Alderman Bob Wilson agreed that  smaller containers would not be  as visible.  "Plus, some of the people  who live around there make  very good use of those containers," said Gurney before  recommending the matter be  handed over to Sechelt District  Council since Davis Bay beach  is under their authority.  "And the overflow and the  'debris spread around by the  crows and the seagulls would be  far worse than the dumpsters,"  commented Wilson.  The two groups involved in  establishing a theatre in Gibsons  Landing should get together  and come to some agreement  rather than ask Gibsons Council  to "maintain control" and "impose equal representation"  from both groups.  That was the response of  Gibsons Town Council to a  February 1 letter sent to council  from the Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project Society  (GLTPS).  In its letter the GLTPS  recommended council consider  a new management team to  coordinate joint development  and promotion between the  Gibsons Landing Heritage  Society and GLTPS of the  Women's Institute Hall as a  community and professional  theatre.  "We hope that our society's  efforts of the past years can be  incorporated into the Women's  Institute Hall project and thus  accelerate the completion of  some facility within Gibsons  that will accommodate  theatrical events," wrote  GLTPS secretary Mary Bit-  troff.  The GLTPS and the Heritage  Society differ mainly in the  seating capacity of the desired  theatre and the amount of  modification to the 1930's  Women's Institute Hall, now  being used as a School District  maintenance shed.  Bittroff said the Heritage  Society has the ability to restore  and maintain the heritage  qualities of the Women's Institute Hall, while the GLTPS  has the expertise and funding  ability to construct and manage  the operating theatre component.  But while the Heritage Society wants to maintain the external fascade of the hall and limit  seating to 140 seats, the GLTPS  maintains that 200 seats is the  minimum number needed to  cover the expenses of user  groups.  This would probably require  an extension to the building,  "but if done to heritage standards on the least visible side, it  would be still aiceptable for  heritage funding, ' explained  Bittroff.  She added that these plans,  endorsed by the GLTPS executive, were put to its membership at the society's annual  general meeting last Thursday  night.  In regards to management  Bittroff explained that "Gibsons Council should maintain  control over the development of  the project and our recommendation would achieve that while  still involving the volunteer efforts of very qualified citizens  of the Sunshine Coast in the  development and management  of the hall."  Responding to the letter, Gibsons staff wrote that the town  does not own the WI Hall and is  not yet in a position to enter into an agreement with any  group.  "While the statistics from  other communities may prove  that 200 seats is 'minimum',  how large a subsidy is required  to maintain the building over  the non-use days and the times  when only 80 or 100 seats are  filled?", asked the staff.  "It's like a marriage gone  wrong," said Alderman Ken  Collins about the apparent  disunity   between   the   two  groups. "It started out that we  were going to donate this little  building (the old firehall) for  theatre performances and we  had two groups interested in  working together."  "(Now) it keeps getting larger  and more expensive."  Collins said that Gibsons is  not large enough for a commercially viable theatre, and by endorsing one the town would be  "treading where cities fear to  go." He added that any theatre  in Gibsons should be available  to amateurs.  Please turn to page 5  Gibsons by-pass  The Department of Highways unveiled Ihe plans for the  long-awaited Gibsons By-Pass last week with construction  slated to being in May, 1990.  The work will be done in two stages, Langdale to Stewart  Road and Stewart Road to Payne Road with the budget  spread over two fiscal years.  Contacted by Ihe Coast News, Gibsons Planner Rob  Buchan confirmed that the by-pass was as it had been envisaged by the town council.  "The only problem that could arise," said Buchan,  "would be if the second phase is delayed at all. In that event  we would still have traffic funnelling along North Road into  the area of our schools and our main traffic bottleneck.  "That is something we will have to be aware of," said the  town planner.  "Now look, fellows, normally I go south for the winter. I mean,  this driving sleet is just ridiculous."

The attempt to bring a commercially viable theatre to  the picturesque landing area of Gibsons came very close  to success. It was intended to provide a much needed  facility for locals and, with professional actors in the  summertime, to give Gibsons a destination resort identity.  It was an excellent project, listed as a priority for Gibsons economic development by the Gibsons Economic  Strategy Committee. It was also served tirelessly and  well by as talented and dedicated a group of community  volunteers as has been collected together in one  endeavour on the Sunshine Coast in the past 20 years.  It was also subjected as no other community project  has been to an unending series of vindictive and  misleading attacks. One of the constant critics was an  unsuccessful applicant for the job of fund raiser;  another was a former director who left in disgrace. One  of the two fulminated about matters financial whilst  spending much of the eighties on social assistance. Like  a pack of rabid dogs, otherwise decent members of the  arts community rounded on the project, joining the attack.  Through it all Rai Purdy kept his dignity and his  open-heartedness. Luck was not with him finally when  the federal and provincial funds promised were switched  to Sechelt at the last minute. But for that he would have  proved his vision was meritorious and silenced the  venomous detractors in the most telling way possible, by  rendering a significant and valuable and enduring service to his chosen community.  We applaud his splendid efforts and admire his grace  under constant unjustified and unkind pressure.  Election  By the time this paper is out the Sechelt Indian Band  will be choosing their new Band Government. Letters to  this paper indicate it has been a vigorous campaign.  When the election dust settles, we are sure our Indian  neighbours will pull together and face their promising  future united. We wish them well.  5 YEARS AGO  President of the Sunshine Coast School Teachers'  Association Brian Butcher slams the confrontational  approach of the provincial government in matters  educational.

I believe that  it is true that my credentials for  discussing the future and the  past of theatre on the Sunshine  Coast arc as good as anyone's. I  have also, you will admit, had  very little to say about the subject though obviously the opportunity has always been al  hand given my role as publisher  and editor of the local  newspaper.  For those who do not know, I  was one of three founders of the  Driftwood Players back in! |%9  - the others being Eileen  Glassl'ord and George Matthews. I was also a founder  member of the Eileen Glassl'ord  Arts Foundation, subsequently  renamed the Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project.  In addition, I have performed  wilh every theatre group which  has been active on the Sunshine  Coast in the past 20 years: the  Suncoast Players, which were  Pender Harbour based; and  Ensemble Theatre which  operated out of Roberts Creek  briefly in the early I980's. I  have seen many theatre projects  come and go and have opposed  none of them.  1 am deeply saddened by the  last-minute failure of the people  who carried on the Gibsons  Landing Theatre Project after I  resigned in 1987. That failure  was occasioned by the decision  of senior levels of government  to provide all the funds likely lo  be available lo a project of the  'M^&Ul VC<^ Givc" recewl���ncirts,oiie  !i|W\ V-^cah only imagine thc*iiiluic^  jF   UM\ of Ptetal Service locally!

I am doubly saddened by the  failure of the Gibsons Landing  Theatre Project's stalwart  members to achieve a role so far  in the proposed renovation of  the Women's Institute Hall into  a usable theatre space. In my  view, the open-heartedness with  which the GLTP turned and offered their collected monies and  talents towards the renovation  of the Women's Institute was  admirable and in the best interests of the community.  I also believe, and this puts  me at odds with many it seems,  that to wring one's hands and  lament ihe failure of local  groups to co-operate is not  enough. There seems to be a  tendency for people to do that  and to feel righteous about their  innate superiority because they  haven't come down on one side  or another.  No, it is necessary to trace the  root causes of the failure to cooperate and name them, if they  are to be eliminated. One takes  this position knowing that  charges of bias will inevitably  follow.  In an interview conducted by  Ellen Frith a month ago an unnamed representative of the  Heritage Society said it was not  possible to amalgamate because  the constitutions (of the theatre  group and the Heritage Society)  are 'apples and oranges'. They  certainly are, because the constitution of the Heritage Society  makes no mention of running a  theatre.  It is my view thai ihe abrasive  intransigence of Heritage Socie  ty President Fred Inglis is at the  root of the problem. I note that  the acquisition of heritage status  for the residence of Fred's  grandfather, unquestionably the  most outstanding heritage site  on the Sunshine Coast, was not  achieved by the Heritage Society specifically because of a like  intransigence on the part of  their president.  Not content with the deserved  kudos from the community for  spearheading the fight to save  the old community hall, it seems  to me that Fred Inglis is taking a  dog-in-the-mangerish attitude  to it. He is supported by the current executive of the Driftwood  Players who are looking no farther ahead than what they conceive to be free rehearsal space  when the building is Anally  usable.  Nor, in comparison with the  theatre project people, is there  any track record of successful  management on the part of the  existing Driftwood Players. The  current leadership, mainly  Dianne Evans and Nest Lewis,  presided last year over the  demise of the Summer Play  Parade, did they not?  Lost also in the shuffle is the  concept that Gibsons will need  something soon to give it some  character and identity. As what  is described as the hottest real  estate market in BC, we are in  danger of becoming a bland and  featureless bedroom suburb of  Vancouver and the new by-pass  will be just that.  The theatre project, let us  remember, was the second  priority of the Gibsons  Economic Strategy Committee  and designed to give Gibsons a  destination-resort identity.  The Heritage Society has 20  unachieved projects on its list of  desirables. I wholeheartedly  support their goals and ran  historic pictures of the Coast  every week in this paper for a  dozen years in the hope of  awakening some interest in the  Coast's vanishing history.  I cannot believe the best interest of the Heritage Society  will be served if the group  spends all its time raising money  and its president's energy  renovating a single hall to standards that the best advice  available to us tells us will be  uneconomic for its users.  The founding spirit of the  Driftwood Players and the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project  was Eileen Glassford. Hers was  a genius for inclusion and cooperation. Most of the principals mentioned knew her and  should remember that.  Thaw  Over the land freckled with snow half-thawed  The speculating rooks at their nests cawed.

Nutter  It is now just on a year since  the Ayalollah called on all good  Muslims lo gel out and murder  Salman Rushdie, a British  citi/en, for writing a book called  Satanic Verses. In this year the  Ayalollah himself has gone up  among (he celestial houris. Died  in fact, but his target Rushdie  remains below, protected by ihe  Special Branch of Scotland  Yard.  This situation is hotting up  again, if there can be said lo be  comparatives in such an extraordinary case. The paperback edition of the book is now  due to come out, compounding  a thousand fold the initial insult, if that is what it was.  This time the publisher, Viking Penguin, and Mr. Rushdie  well know how the book is  viewed by Muslims throughout  the world. When the book first  came out maybe not, but now  there can be no question of how  they feel.  So here we go again with the  question of freedom of the press  on the one hand, and a requirement we have given ourselves to  sec lhal no culture shall be  stomped upon by any other  culture.  In this perhaps we have some  kind of a stake. Canada is the  only country in the world, or  history I think, lo have a  Minister of Multiculturalism. It  may be that not many in our  ministry, or anywhere else,  know much of what this means.  It could be that it's just the idea  of the thing that carries it along.  But here we have a situation  that clearly falls within the  jurisdiction.  Rushdie himself is saying that  the paperback should come out,  and Rushdie of course is the guy  who's under the gun. For all of  this year he has been in the  hands of the Special Branch.  They choose the places where  he'll stay, and they tell him  when to move. A turbaned type  comes in unexpected to the local  pub, and it's pack the bags and  on and on again.  He has of course made an  awful lot of money. The first  edition sold out across the  world on its 'celebrity' value  perhaps alone. Who knows how  many of those purchasers have  actually read the thing.  But still, for Rushdie, this can  hardly be a viable world.  Perhaps, if he would decline the  paperback edition, he could  climb himself out of it. He  chooses not.  So here we go again. A year  ago when the whole thing first  boiled up there was what might  have been expected: a strong  reaction from the Brits. No  Head of State from wherever  puts out a murder contract on  any of our citizens, etc. Now a  year later there seems a different  view.  John Le Carre, writer of  Smiley's People and all that,  weighs in from New York with  an opinion. How he gets into it I  don't really know, maybe as an  expert in international intrigue  and writing. Whal he says is  that the book is not worth the  bloodshed.  There has been bloodshed.  Six were killed and a hundred  injured in Pakistan; and 12 anti-  Rushdie types were shot by the  Bombay police. None so far in  Canada, but our booksellers are  explicitly under this sword.  A year ago when it all first  came up there was serious  discussion. Gzowski I  remember on morning radio  raising the issue with  booksellers from Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. That survey  was two to one I think in favour  of protecting the employees.  In Britain there are 3000  employees of Viking Penguin.  There is also the strongest tradition against any kind of force  interfering with the press, if  anyone wants to bet though, I'll  say the paperback does not get  out.  Vour community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper Coast News. February 12,1990  Letters to the Editor  Preserve Gospel Rock  Knaus called to account on bus issue  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Mr. Jacob Knaus:  Your response to the concerns raised in Trudy and Frank  Heller's letter, re: school busing, have in turn raised some  concerns in me since it comes  from an aspiring trustee.  In your letter you imply that  the Franklin Road students are  forced to walk to school  because the district has created  special bus services for French  Immersion students at English  speaking students' expenses. A  simple phone call lo the school  board office would have told  you this is not true.  French Immersion students at  Gibsons Elementary ride the  regular high school bus from  Roberts Creek and walk from  Elphinstone. Langdale Heights  French Immersion students ride  to Gibsons on the bus returning  from delivering students to  Langdale Elementary School.  Franklin Road students attend Gibsons Elementary  whether they attend French Immersion or not. Furthermore  They live within the walking  radius which is excluded from  the provincial busing subsidy  and, with or without French  Immersion, would not get an  extra bus because the cost is  prohibitive.  The busing issue is not one of  English speaking students  trudging miles through the  winter snows while French  speaking students ride in  limousine-style comfort. The  real issue is that there are not  enough buses to meet Ihe  demands of a growing student  population and the school  board has been forced to make  hard decisions on where ils  educational dollars will be spent  thanks to 10 years of Socred  restraint; in short, buses or  books.  The question to you as an  aspiring trustee is whal are you  going to do lo address the real  problem?  Do you recognize that society  as a whole benefits from its  education system in its doctors,  scientists, technicians and  tradespeople and therefore has  an obligation to fund that  system?  Will you therefore work to  get the educational tax burden  off the backs of us homeowners  and shifted back onto the province as a whole so that our  Sunshine Coast students can obtain an education equal lo those  in areas of greater population  density?  Or are you going lo continue  r  the user pays attitude that has  produced a state of crisis in  education and make a small  group of French Immersion  primary students the convenient  scapegoat for 10 years of education restraint?  If it is the latter, as a parent  of children about to enter the  school system, I have to ask  myself, what is your and your  organization's real agenda? Are  you really running for the posi  tion of trustee to ensure that the  inadequate education funding  levels stay the same or worsen?  If that is the case what programs will be your next target?  While you might think 1 have  strayed a long way from the  issue of a bus for a student on  Franklin Road, your response  to Mr. and Mrs. Heller's letter  invites these questions.  A trustee should be making  informed decisions on behalf of  all students, basing those decisions on facts and not fanning  the fires of hatred wilh personal  biases and misrepresentations.  An aspiring trustee should be  running for the position of  'trust' because he/she believes  he/she can make a positive contribution to the education of  our children, not on a negative  platform of being anti-teacher  and anti-French.  Rob Bennie  Editor:  I live south of Gower Point  Road slightly west of Gospel  Rock and I wish to express to  you and Gibsons Town Council  (who will receive a copy of this  letter), my concerns about  preserving Gospel Rock as is.;  it's a remarkable area anil  I'm concerned recent activity by  developers will spoil it.

SCRD  Box 800,  Sechell, BC  Re: Local Transit Service  Dear Sirs:  As you review the transportation needs of residents of the  Sunshine Coast, we ask that you  give serious consideration to the  needs of menially challenged  people.  More and more mentally  challenged adults (mentally  retarded) arc coming into our  communities to live as independently as possible. Opportunities for meaningful employment and vocational education  as well as community integration are now a reality for individuals who, in the past, were  cither kepi at home or in an institution.  Availability of transportation  is vital to the full integration of  mentally challenged persons.  Throughout the province,  people with mental disabilities  do nol have adequate transportation services. In urban areas,  access lo regular transportation  services is available, but in rural  or semi-rural communities like  the Sunshine Coast this is not an  option.  It is quite impossible for these  people to work or use recreational facilities and community  programs and services without  transportation. The only  transportation service now  available is not of any real use  because of the lack of routes.  As well, transportation needs  do nol finish at the end of a  work or school day and  transportation   should   be  available for residents, mentally  challenged or not, outside of  business or school hours.  We often hear the question,  "How can I participate if I  can'l get there?"...and we applaud the efforts of families,  friends and volunteers to meet  the transportation needs of  menially challenged people.  However, we believe lhat no  one should have to rely on the  good will of others for a service  as essential to community integration as transportation.  We trust that this letter is  helpful to you in determining  further transportation needs on  the Coast and would be happy  lo meet with you lo discuss the  matter further.  Nancy A.

In free, lawful societies,  laws are obeyed because an  enlightened citizenry generally  recognizes the advantages of  obedience and co-operation,  But here in Sechelt, the word  obedience has an obsolescent  overtone. The Sechelt Indian  Band government is losing  authority, and in the absence of  authority, obedience is scarcely  possible unless money is spent  for lawyer fees.  The word discipline, whose  roots is the same as that of disciple, now has as its primary application a form of intimidating  encounters. As the meaning of  words change so, does our  quality of life and behaviour  degenerate?  We must not allow ourselves  to remain the captives of the  challenges of the past. We must  look forward to the challenges  of the future. The primary  challenge of the I990's will be  economic development. Meeting this head on will require a  substantial shift of the Sechelt  Indian Band's resources to  membership oriented activities  and employment for all.  Despite all the rhetoric about  the success of the past two and  one half years, we have done a  one million dollar debt in housing in less than a year, reversing  20 years of black ink and we  Gibsons Rugby  Valentine's  Dance  Feb. 17 - 8pm to 1am  Sechelt Indian Band Hall  Ticket! $10 ��� Available al Ernie & Gwen's Drive-In, Gibsons  & Big Mac's, Sechell  TEMPORARY LIQUOR STORE  During renovations of the  GIBSONS  liquor store, a temporary store will  be located across the Mall.

Now this was done, the Chief  and Council borrowed over  $600,000 in March 1987 to construct new homes at the  Bayview subdivision, and in  1988 borrowed another  $300,000 to launch construction  of more new units, instead of  following the recommendation  that the past Chief and Council  were endeavouring to do. That  is to negotiate with CMHC at  the Ottawa level and ratify an  important agreement which  would have made the Sechelt  Indian Band an agent of the  CMHC institution.  Furthermore, the past Chief  and Council would have created  a Sechelt Indian Band housing  construction crew to build our  new units.  Even so, accumulating all  that debt would not have been  so bad if we had invested the  money we borrowed in activities  that expanded our capacity to  produce more resourceful (people) band members.  That would have generated  new wealth with which to pay it  back. Instead the Chief and  Council spent it in an unproductive capital buildup, without  acknowledging the best approach to attaining the one  million dollars, which was a  new initiative recommended by  the Chief and Council in 1986  that wouldn't have generated  any bills or debts of thai  magnitude for the Sechelt Indian Band.  We do not want to ever be in  debt to the banks.  We want to use our new  resources and revenue to create  new jobs and wealth for SIB  through Education: which  would be one of our distinct  society's most crucial investment today for our children's  productive capabilities to be  self-sufficient in their time.

She now  has grandchildren in school.  "1 have an open mind and  I'm willing to learn," she told  the Coast News. "I know I have  a lot of common sense and now  that my children are grown, I  have a lot of time for things like  this."  JAKOB KNAUS  Jakob Knaus came to the  Sunshine Coast Ave and a half  years ago after spending 34  years in Sri Lanka with a Swiss  e:;port company.  Starting at the age of 22, he  eventually became the managing director of the company,  with three factories and over  600 employees under his command.  He told the Coast News that  his priorities are "to provide  students with safe schools in an  earthquake threatened part of  the world; lo provide every  child wilh an equal opportunity  lo acquire skills required in  adult life; lo allocate our limited  resources for the greatest  benefit for the largest number  of pupils: and to make the  schools accountable to the lax-  paying public in the face of a 17  per cent functional illiteracy rate  in BC."  Knaus is a director of the  local branch of the Association  for the Preservation of English  in Canada (APEC). Asked for  his thoughts on the language  issue he said, "1 think everyone  should learn at least one other  language, but 1 ant not for an  early immersion system. They  should learn English first, and  once they have mastered the  language, from Grade 4 onwards they should then learn the  knowledge and culture of  another language."

Mayor Diane Strom said ihe  name Gibsons Landing Park  was appropriate as it honoured  the spot where ihe town's  forefathers first landed.  The name Winegarden Park  was proposed last year by some  local residents lo honour an ear  ly Gibsons pioneering family.  Recently, council received 19  letters and petitions favouring  the name.  Alderman Ken Collins,  noting the great deal of local  support for the Winegarden  name, urged council to make a  commitment lo using il soon in  the future.  Mayor Strom said Winegarden has topped the town's list of  names for some time, adding  lhal with ihe town's rapid  development there will be many  opportunities to name streets  and roads alter early pioneers,  in keeping with town policy.  FRANCIS KONOPASEK  Francis Konopasek lives in  Halfmoon Bay with his wife  and children. A retired senior  university professor, he spent 35  years as a research physicist and  'a teacher of teachers'.  He was Canada's first single  male foster parent and over the  years he and his wife have had  about 200 foster children in  school.  He has had extensive experience as a member of a variety of education related boards.  On the Sunshine Coast, he is a  member of the school board's  Health and Safety and Annual  Report Committees, and is a  member of the Parent Advisory  Committee and the Cross  District Parent Council.  Konopasek expressed concern about several issues.  "School taxes must be kept  under control. The new system  of referendums may help, but  also may hinder the wise spending of lax money.  "Our district from West  Sechelt to Egmont must be  given more access to the school  board. The school board offices  are too far away and the area  too large. I propose moving the  board offices to Sechelt and a  re-alignment of boundaries.  "The overall idea of the Year  2000 sounds great, but I have  serious doubts about details,  especially cost and implementation in the higher grades. Luckily, we have 10 years to make  changes and learn from experience.  "I believe strongly in an effective Core French program  but know that it costs money.  We must bring the present program up to standard at  minimum cost.  "I believe in French Immer  sion as an alternative program  which should be available to all  children in the district.  "1 believe in governance by  consensus; and in co-operation,  not confrontation. My most important ideal is a belief in the  supreme value of our children  to our country. We must make  sure they grow into adults who  are our pride and not our  burden."

Jay Pomfret, society member  spoke about the efforts to have  the Heritage Society accept the  suggestion that only a 200 seat  theatre would prove economic  for users and said that he had  been informed by Victoria that  the enlargement needed to provide that seating could pass  heritage standards.

Youths  to fast  by Dave Fraser  How many people are willing  to go 30 hours without food to  help out the poor in developing  countries?  On February 16 and 17,15 or  so youths will gather together in  the Calvary Baptist Church and  fast as part of a World Vision  thrust to raise funds to help the  starving and destitute of Third  World countries.  Owen said a similar effort last  year by the church's senior  youth group raised $2000 for  Third World relief.  Youth group member Leila  Roberts challenged other youths  to take part in the 30-hour  famine. "We should be willing  to give up our free time and  food to help the poor."  The youths were motivated to  take part in the fundraiser after  viewing films of the starving  and diseased in impoverished  countries. One touching scene  showed workers earning 25  cents a day crushing rocks in  order to keep their babies alive.  The senior teens will be approaching local residents with  pledge forms. Anyone willing to  take part in the 30-hour famine  challenge should contact Kay  Owen at 886-8788.

In fact  you pay more attention to the  Sunshine Coast in this article  than you ever did when you  were our backbench MP and a  Liberal at that.  Actually you were MP for the  Chilcotin lo which the Sunshine  Coasl at that lime was attached  as an afterthought. You did  visit here occasionally, your  Father Christmas build suggesting you might be bringing  gifts -bought by our own tax  money. Was it about thai time  your party began to show signs  of hoof and mouth disease?  You say this particular column of yours was written by someone from the Chilcotin,  hiding behind the pen name of  Downwind Tracker, who is  wintering here on the Sunshine  Coast. It's plain lhal you didn't  write it. You are a much better  writer than lhat.  Perhaps you will send Downwind Tracker to summer in  Mexico, and use his letters from  there to subtly reveal not what  Mexico is like, but what  Chilcotin people are like, as you  see them.  Subtle indeed, Mr. St. Pierre,  to use Downwind Tracker's  rube humour, fresh out of the  cowshed, to appear to jeer at  the singers and musicians in our  choirs and orchestra. But all the  time you are revealing Ihe crudity of your beloved Chilcotiners.  Very crafty. But why do you  dislike the Chilcotin, Mr. St.  Pierre, when it has provided  you with the materials for your  splendid novels?  Once the musicians and  singers of the Soundwaves and  of the Pender Harbour choir  realize this, they'll gel the laugh  you intended them to have.  Thank you, Mr. St. Pierre, now  lhat we have read beneath your  lines.  And the musicians will, I  hope, consider my suggestion  thai they invite Downwind  Tracker to be the soloist in the  next concert. Maybe they will  even pay him his $20 back to  bawl out a tune. Could it be  Downwind Tracker is after all  some resident of the Sunshine  Coast?  By the way if Downwind does  perform, he will be taped. A  recording of lhat, entitled  Sounds of the Chilcotin, would  sell up there faster than a grass  fire moves.  Hope you don'l mind when  we hang up clippings of your  column on our bulletin boards  for the sake of those who missed il. We want everyone to  share your subtle shades of  humour. Thanks again, pard-  ner.

Thorough descriptions are  asked for: exact location, height  from ground, any chicks  observed this past season, the  general habitat, water systems  nearby, type of vegetation.  If you have sighted eagles' '  nests, please telephone John at  886-3346 and give as much of  any of the above that you have  observed.  Eagles are certainly more  numerous than ihey were a few  years ago, and some were  recently observed scrapping  over a gull that one of them had  seized near a Hopkins beach.

FAMINE  Lasl year several groups of  youth undertook to gather  pledges to assist people in countries where drought and wars  had left them hungry and  homeless.  In Gibsons, the project raised  $2000 to be used by World Vision in their Canada-wide campaign. Federal government  funds augment the donations  raised by Canadian youth who  earn the money pledged by  undertaking a 30-hour period of  nothing but fruit juices and  water.  Quite an undertaking for  most adolescents but they have  done it before and intend to do  it again this year.  Beginning Friday, February  16 at I pm a group of young  people in Calvary Baptist  church will not touch food until  7 pm Saturday.  They will be seeking pledges  before that. Do listen.

To the many members  celebrating birthdays in  February - have a happy day.  The meeting closed with two  humourous readings by Grace  Gilchrist - "Seniors are worth a  Fortune' and 'The Outhouse'  which, no doubt, brought back  many memories to some of the  members.  The next executive meeting is  Monday, February 26 at 9:30  am. Take care and we'll see you  at the next general meeting  March 5 at 1:30 pm.  Fire alert  The fire hazard rating of the  Sunshine Coast's forests will be  easily visible this summer, as  Sechelt District Council plans to  put a forestry fire sign near the  Sechelt Travel Info Centre.  The four-foot by eight-foot  sign which shows the dryness  rating of the forests used to be  located at the forestry building  site at the south entrance to the  town. But since the Forestry offices moved to Field Road, the  fire advisory has not been in  prominent view.  Alderman Bob Wilson warned that the sign should not interfere with the aesthetic setting  of the Rockwood Centre's gardens, "after all the money  we've spent on beautification."

Testing makes Bev testy  by Bev Cranston, 886-2215  Fines, fines and more fines.  How can the average person,  the average Creeker continue to  pay? Vehicle testing is happening not just in Vancouver, but  all over BC. There are so many  junkers and close to being  junkers on the Coast, that local  garage owners estimate it at 30  per cent.  I would estimate much higher  than that in Roberts Creek.  How about 50 plus? What will  all these drivers do, myself included? Do you pay the fines,  towing bill if your vehicle is  taken off the road, $39 per hour  mechanics bill, parts etc. It goes  on and on.  Apparently even if your vehicle has decent rubber, your  lights, wipers and brakes all  work, everything checks out,  even your very easily popped,  but never-used-anyway emergency brake works, if you have  dangerously looking or excessive rust on your vehicle  (which is on most Creek trucks),  you will be fined and possibly  be told to 'get il off the road'.  How do you then get to work?  get your wood? transport your  kids to preschool? etc.  Someone suggested a solution  to me the other day. Everyone  with rust buckets, lay on some  heavy bondo and paint your car  or truck rust orange. This way  at leasl, most of Roberts Creek  vehicles will be the same colour  and how can anyone tell if  there's rust or not if the whole  car looks rusty orange?  It's not possible to have a  beautiful rust-free vehicle when  the car has spent its life on the  West Coast. We have salty  roads, sally water and salty air.  We also have Port Mellon raining down on us every day.  We are told vehicle testing is  for our benefit. Is this really so,  or is this just another way for  the average person trying to get  by, to be hassled?  SCHOOL NEWS  There was so much snowfall  last week that the school buses  and drivers had a tough time  getting to and from Gibsons.  On Wednesday all the kids taking buses were sent home early.  They didn't even have time to  eat their lunches.  In the afternoon the sun came  out and the snow disappeared.  It is hard to predict the weather,  especially on the Coast.  The Science Fair is coming up  soon. Remember to have your  entries al the school gym on  February 19 for the show on the  20. There are a lot of ingenious  and enterprizing kids at the  Creek School, so this should  prove to be a very interesting  show.  Come on out and see their  projects at 1:30 to 3 pm for the  public, judging starts at 11 am  to I pm.  The Science Fair has three  main objectives, according to  teacher Eleanor Swan, in her  letter to parents: 1. To encourage student interest and initiative in science, 2. To encourage students to perform investigative science research projects, and 3. To provide an opportunity for students to  demonstrate their interest and  work in science.  Several top projects will be  chosen to enter further competition at the District Science Fair  at Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons,  March 2.  Thanks, Eleanor, for all your  enthusiasm and support.

In dollar  terms, this means variations  ranging from premium decreases  ofabout$15to increases of  around $60 for these motorists.  Changes include major  adjustments to rating territories,  increased "No-Fault" Accident  Benefits and the annual "aging"  of some vehicles. The impact of  1990 claims cost increases is  also a factor.  These changes and increased  claims costs mean that ICBC  will need an estimated 4.8 per  cent more money in 1990 than  in 1989.  Other claim-free motorists,  such as those who have their  vehicles rated for pleasure use  only or who live in some of the  newly defined rating territories,  will see their premiums rise  seven to thirteen per cent.  Premiums for Compulsory  and Extended Third Party Legal  Liability coverages combined  have been increased by six per  cent for new and renewal  policies as of January 1,1990.  Underinsured Motorist  Protection and Comprehensive  coverage also rise by six per  cent. Premiums for Collision  and Specified Perils coverages  remain unchanged.  ���ICBC  WHAT'S NEW?  Of Territorial changes mean  increases over and above the  general increase in some  communities and contribute to  either decreases in premiums or  less of an increase in other areas.  utW "No-Faull" Accident  Benefits have been increased for  auto-related claims, occurring  on or after January 1,1990,  resulting in injury or death.  W For those who qualify,  disability benefits for an employed  person have been increased to  $200 per week from $145.  PT The limit of liability for  medical and rehabilitation benefits  has been increased by 50 per  cent to a maximum of $ 150,000.  W The maximum amount for  funeral expenses has been  doubled from $1000 lo $2000.  MT To reduce fraud, proof of  identity is now required for  most Autoplan transactions.  FINES &  DRIVER POINTS  W Motorists caught violating  traffic rules ate now required to  pay fines in addition to being  assigned penalty points and  charged Driver Point Premiums.  US* Drivers with five points or  more are billed for points recorded  in a twelve month review period.  Up lo December 31,1989, Ihe  twelve month review period  starts fourteen months prior to  ihe driver's binhday (coming  forward twelve months) but as  of January 1,1990, the review  period will start 17 months prior  lo Ihe driver's birthday to allow  for recording and processing time.

As part of the federally funded Sunshine Coast Community  Futures Association (SCCFA),  the Business Centre has already  helped more than 120 people  since opening almost a year ago.  Eleven businesses have received  loans from the centre's $1.55  million pot, resulting in the  creation of 27 jobs and the  maintenance of seven jobs  locally.  "These are high risk loans,"  Community Futures Manager  and Co-ordinator Sharon  Sawchuk explained to the Coast  News. "People must go to  traditional lending institutions  first. Only after they've been  refused will we look at a  loan...at two to three per cent  higher rates."  But the loan fund is only one  aspect in the SCCFA's five-year  strategy.

Members of the  SCRD's Economic Development Commission and successful local business people saw the  need for incentive programs,  and set the ball in motion for  the federal program.  When the Community Futures Committee was first set  up, it developed a nine-point list  on which new businesses would  be evaluated. The criteria includes environmental soundness, job creation potential,  resident and visitor benefits,  growth potential and long term  viability.  The first stage in the SCCFA  plan was the Business Centre,  which is run separately from the  SCCFA and is expected to  become self-supporting at the  end of five years. The association and the centre each have a  board of directors and share  one full-time secretary.  Sawchuk is the association's  only full-time staff member.  Denise Quarry is the Business  Centre's Acting Manager, and  Pam McKinnon is the full-time  business analyst.  The centre provides free advice and counselling to new and  existing businesses. A library of  reference materials is available,  offering self-help books on  everything from starting a  business from scratch to general  guides on financial planning,  details on free trade and a comprehensive book on the  numerous business assistance  programs available in BC.  The SCCFA's second phase,  Ihe Self Employment Incentive  Program, began last August  and is geared towards those  people currently on unemployment or welfare. Successful applicants receive $200 a week for  one year to get them started in  their own business. "Before applying Ihey must have a completed business plan, which we  can help them draw up," said  Sawchuk.  So far 20 entrepreneurs have  been accepted into the program,  beginning projects such as  cabinet making, stone masonry,  and leather crafting. The individuals must also initially pul  up $2600 in cash or in kind.  Sawchuk explained that tools or  a vehicle already owned and  that would be used in the  business could be considered an  'in kind' contribution.  For people who believe work  is available in another part of  the province or country, the SCCFA offers a Relocation Program. Job opportunities are explored, contact made with that  area's Canada Employment  Centre, and the SCCFA will  pay 50 per cent of relocation  costs, up to a maximum of  $5000.  Other projects of the SCCFA  include looking at the impact of  the retirement community on  the Coast and identifying possible jobs that could be created to  serve this sector. "I'm still  working on material collected  by a researcher we hired last  summer for this project," said  Sawchuk, adding that the over  55 age group comprises 30 per  cent of the population, and  there's "$3 to $5 million in  leakages" - products or services  that are being bought off the  Sunshine Coast.  Training Strategies is another  area being addressed by the  association. "We'd like local  employers to take down the barriers as far as on-the-job training of employees," Sawchuk explained. This includes upgrading skills, developing new  skills as the markets change and  even offering basic training for  new employees.  "For example, take the  hospitality industry," Sawchuk  said. "What kind of training, if  any, does a new waitress or  chambermaid receives?" The  SCCFA has recently hired a  researcher to study training opportunities locally, and plans to  develop a strategy that will  result in more private sector job  training.  "To suni up our aims, we're  trying to reduce the unemployment rate on the Sunshine  Coast," said Sawchuk. "And  make it possible for businesses  to have a complete range of services without having to look off  the Coast.  The Sunshine Coast Business  Centre is at 205-5710 Teredo  I Street, Sechelt.

NUKE NEWS  There were reports last week  of a Los Angeles class submarine, ihe USS Birmingham,  at Nanoose. It's armed with  'tomahawks', which are seagoing cruise missiles.  GOOD NEWS  My stolen stamp collection  has been recovered, but the  thief has not been identified.  Two anonymous young gentlemen found it, carefully wrapped in plastic, stashed in the  bush off a trail. My thanks to  them both for gelling il back to  A group of some 24 concerned citizens met at Coopers  Green Hall last Sunday  February 4 to continue discussions on the protest of the  closure of the Halfmoon Bay  Post Office.  "This does not just concern  Halfmoon Bay, nor is it a  political campaign," said Chairman Jim Elliot. The people  don't seem to realise that every  post office on the Coast is under  the gun."  Post office employees are being assured by Canada Post that  there are no plans for further  closures, but other sources state  this is not the case.  "They won't know anything  about it till it happens, as was  the case in Halfmoon Bay."  Canada Post employees from  other areas on the Sunshine  Coast revealed some startling  facts as to what is happening to  the mail in recent times.  "How do you think we feel  when customers complain that  their parcel contents are damaged on arrival. Your mail is now  delivered to the Coast by private  contractors in vehicles which  might well be also used for such  things as fish deliveries. The  mail no longer comes in Canada  Post bags, but in clear plastic  bags which must be purchased  by the contractor himself."  Another employee pointed  out thai there are many  customer complaints when the  post office runs out of requested stamps.  "Each post office is allotted  so much slock, but the franchises can order as many as they  want. This makes for dissatisfied customers and for frustration of Ihe employee who has to  explain Ihis. Also, in Ihe case of  your priority mail, delivery is  only guaranteed from major to  major centres. Therefore, those  for rural areas can remain in the  post office until the next day."  Vice-chairman Ralph Mahar  read some excerpts from the  summary of the corporate plan  which keeps repeating that 'the  ultimate   goal   is   to   meet  customer service'.  "The employees keep getting  notices and even a video telling  us what a wonderful job we are  doing. But we know that the  customer is not getting good  customer service."  All people on the Sunshine  Coast are urged to write letters  to Mr. Marchand, Standing  Committee Consumer and Corporate Affairs, Room 618,  Wellington Building, House of  Commons, Ottawa, Ontario.  KIA 0A6.  There are 14 members of  parliament sitting on this committee and it is their job to take  your concerns to Canada Post  and the government. This committee is to present ils recommendations to the government  some time in early March.  "If everyone from one end of  the Sunshine Coast to the other  is united, we too can get our  protests to Ottawa and give support to those other areas, some  of whom are already in Ottawa  making their presentations."  Another suggestion was that  of those who are offered franchises refused to take them  there would be a better chance  of our post offices being retained.

It is a far cry from  the relatively bright and easygoing facility at San Quentin.  Instead of flower gardens and  cheerful ocean vistas, the small  barred windows look out only  on stark yards and looming  granite walls. There are always  several prisoners recovering  from abortive suicide attempts  or the ugly lacerations of corporal punishment. The penal atmosphere is omnipresent and  unrelenting. Herb Wilson falls  easily enough into the familiar  routine but, as he goes about his  duties, he often finds himself  thinking wistfully of Spark  Plug's corny jokes in the Bumping Ward. There are no jokers  here. But it is marginally better  than the rockpile or the jute  mill.  In his spare time, Herb  Wilson tries to resume his  writing - but the stifling atmosphere of Kingston and his  cynical frame of mind, are  hardly conducive to creative  pursuits. He gives up in disgust  and devotes his energies to  writing letters, still determined  to try and market his earlier  manuscripts. He has enlisted the  help of his lawyer in this regard,  but the editors remain  unresponsive.  The head orderly in the  prison hospital is a shifty-eyed  ex-burglar named Frank Smith.  He has been serving time since  1934 after receiving eight years  for wounding a police officer  during a robbery and possessing  housebreaking instruments.  Smith is pleasant enough on the  surface but there is a quirky nervous quality about him. Wilson  neither likes nor trusts Ihe man  bul he endeavours not lo let his  feelings show. He simply does  his work and tries to avoid get-  ling too chummy with Smith.  Herb Wilson had not been  working at Ihe hospital for  more than a few weeks when he  begins to notice that Frank  Smith is excessively friendly  with the overseer - a guard named Ralph Noble. They often  take coffee together, chatting  like two old schoolmates instead  of convict and keeper. Guard  Noble appears lo pander to  Smith - almost as though their  roles were reversed. Wilson  finds their relationship a bit  odd, bul he thinks nothing more  of il al the lime.  The regimented months plod  by.  Herb Wilson has heard  nothing from his wife Alice in  almost two years. She has  evidently heard of his latest  troubles however. On February  24, he receives word from a Los  Angeles attorney that Alice has  finally filed for divorce. Wilson  feels little emotion at the news  -il surprises him thai she hasn't  made such a move long before  this - but there is the matter of  Ihe several pieces of property  they still possess.  Feeling he is entitled to some  share of their mutually-owned  real estate, Wilson contacts a  firm of lawyers in London to  file a petition on his behalf. It is  a futile effort under the circumstances. The divorce is  granted on the grounds of  desertion and all the communal  properties revert to Alice. Herb  Wilson simply shrugs when he  gets the news. He is getting used  to disappointments. It simply  adds fuel to his bitterness.  Kingston, with its stringent rules  and harsh discipline, is getting  to Wilson. He begins to seriously consider returning to crime  on his release.  The more Wilson studies the  odd friendship between Frank  Smith and Guard Noble, Ihe  more he begins to suspect they  are in a collusion of some kind.  Smith's behaviour is odd at  times - as though he had access  to alcohol or drugs. On one of  these occasions, he became  unusually talkative. "Say,  Wilson," he confides, "got a  proposition you might be interested in."  Wilson is instantly  suspicious. "That so?" he says  warily.  "Little money-making deal.  Down in the basement of this  building there's a cupboard full  of narcotics. I figure we can  steal them, smuggle Ihem out of  the joint through a contact of  mine and sell them on the out  side. My contact will use the  loot to buy whatever we want  -booze, tailor-made smokes,  morphine. Sure would make the  time pass a damn sight easier.  What do you think?"  "Afraid you're talking to the  wrong guy," says Wilson. "I  don't drink, smoke or use drugs  - never have. I'd just be taking a  risk for nothing - and I don't  feel like doing any stretches in  the hole."  "Well ain't we the dean-  living type?" declares Frank  Smith, scornfully. "I figured an  old rounder like you would have  done it all. Suit yourself - but I  may have to rope you in  anyhow - whether ydu like it or  not."  Giving Wilson a hard look,  Frank Smith walks off, leaving  the implied threat behind him.  To be continued  hM*Tk��N*N  VALENTINE'S DAY SPECIALS  Dinners for Two  8 oi.

A review of astrological signs  by Penny Fuller  Several years ago, at some  New Age event or another, I  picked up an astrological handout published by Phoenix  Metaphysical Books which  described the blessing and  challenge God gave each  astrological sign. It sums up the  highest potential inherent in  each sign. I have never been  able to establish who wrote it,  but I share it with you now,  with gratitude to 'Phoenix'.  And it was morning as God  stood before his 12 children and  into each of them planted the  seed of human life. One by one  each child stepped forward to  receive his appointed gift.  "To you Aries I give the seed  first, that you might have the  honour of planting it. That for  every seed you plant one million  more will multiply in your  hand. You will not have time to  see the seed grow, for  everything you plant creates  more that must be planted.  "You will be the first to  penetrate the soil of men's  minds with My Idea. But it is  not your job to nourish the  idea, nor question it. Your life is  action and the only action 1  ascribe to you is to begin making men aware of My Creation.  For your good work I give you  the virtue of self-esteem."  Quietly Aries stepped back to  his place.  "To you Taurus I give the  power to build the seed into  substance. Your job is a great  one requiring patience for you  must finish all that has been  started or the seeds will be  wasted to the wind. You are not  to question nor change your  mind in the middle nor to depend on others for what I ask  you to do. For this I give you  the gift of Strength. Use it wisely."  And Taurus stepped back into place.  "To you Gemini I give the  questions without answers, so  that you may bring to all an  understanding of what man sees  around him. You will never  know why men speak or listen,  but in your quest for the  answer, you will find my gift of  Knowledge."  And Gemini stepped back into place.  "To you Cancer I ascribe the  task of teaching men about  emotion. My idea is for you to  cause them laughter and tears so  that all they see and think  develops fullness from inside.  For this I give you the gift of  Family, that your fullness may  multiply."  And Cancer stepped back into place.  "To you Leo I give the job of  displaying My Creation in all its  brilliance to the world. But you  must be careful of pride and  always remember that it is My  Creation, not yours. For if you  forget this, men will scorn you.  There is much joy in the job I  give you but do it well. For this  you are to have the gift of  Honour."  And Leo stepped back into  place.  "To you Virgo I ask for an  examination of all man has  done with My Creation. You  are to scrutinize his ways sharply and remind him of his errors  so that through him My Creation may be perfected. For doing this I give you the gift of  Purity of Thought."  And Virgo stepped back into  place.  "To you Libra I give the mission of service, that man may be  mindful of his duties to others.  That he may learn co-operation  as well as the ability to reflect  the other side of his actions. 1  will put you everywhere there is  discord, and for your efforts I  will give you the gift of Love."  And Libra stepped back into  place.  More next week.

Such was the case at the Wharf Restaurant at  Davis Bay when Laurelle presented the menu and described  the special of the everting.  Since we were celebrating our wedding anniversary we  decided to take our time and peruse the menu. The selection  offered was of such delightful variety that it took some lime  before decisions could be reached. The menu comprised no  less than eight meat selections and eight fish items.  My husband chose the Tournedo's 'Lord Simcoe', which  was translated as prime Alberta tenderloin sauteed in butter  and sliced, served on cognac and garnished with mushrooms.  The rice was accompanied by carrots and fresh mixed green  vegetables. His murmurings of pleasure as he dined were  evidence of the wisdom of his choice.  I found equal pleasure in my chosen fare which was the  filet mignon wrapped in bacon and broiled exactly as requested. Together with baked potato and a variety of  vegetables, it was sufficient for an appetite twice the size of  my own.  Since neither of us have a 'sweet tooth' we agreed on  finishing the meal with a cheese platter rather than any of the  tempting desserts available. Special in the cheese selection was  something quite different, a creamed cheese rolled in dill.  As an added bonus towards a happy anniversary dinner we  were entertained by the Maitre d' who played guitar and sang  a few songs by our table. A climax to a perfect evening.

Coast News, February 12,1990  PORTS   Hockey Oldtimers to visit  Goalie Pete Anderson, seen here miking a glove save, is only 16  but good enough to play in Ihe Men's Hockey League. He tends  goal for the Gibsons Kings. ���NmicI Gaudry photo  On The Rocks  Sweep! Sweep!  by Harry Turner  Sweeping a stone is very important in the game of curling.  Sweeping a rock loo much can  put the rock right through the  house and sweeping il too little  will cause the rock to slow clown  or be off line.  The curler sweeping next to  the stone is called the inside  sweeper. This sweeper must be  sure he/she stays far enough  ahead of the stone so as nol lo  burn it, yet close enough lo heat  the ice ahead of the stone so the  stone glides smoothly down ihe  ice.  The inside sweeper also has  the responsibility for ensuring  the stone has the proper weight  to get lo its exact destination at  the far end of the sheet.  OXPTURE A HEART  WITH FLOWERS.

Ann Lynn  Flowers  885-9455  '.654 Dolphin SI..  ���-  ��� IMIiadeirw-WotnO  The inside sweeper should be  positioned behind the slone  with his or her feet to the rear  and side of the stone with the  body bent over the front of the  stone set to sweep as close to the  slone as possible without burning it.  The outside sweeper sweeps  ahead and on an angle so lhal  both sweepers are able lo keep  as close lo the stone and each  other as possible. The outside  sweeper must watch the path of  the stone for debris and ensure  it is cleared away from the path  of the stone. He must also be  conscious of the inside  sweeper's position so that the  two sweepers do not collide.  If the sweepers remove their  brooms from the ice, ihey must  be certain they both make a full  swipe of their brooms before  removing them from the ice or  they will leave debris under the  rock face which will often cause  a loss of the rock when it takes a  crazy dive or makes a sudden  stop due to the dirt which catches on the rock face.  It is also a rule of Ihe game  lhat rocks must be swept fully  across the face lo prevent a rock  from being stopped short of its  full forward motion.  When the two sweepers are  wailing lo start sweeping a  stone, they should stand back  oul of the line of Ihe stone so  ihe curler in the hack has a clear  sight of ihe skip's broom.  Curlers from ihe opposing learn  should be oul of the line of play  and positioned between the two  hog lines.  Now thai the wealher is warming up again and the snow is  no longer in the parking lol, il is  Important to remember lo clean  your feel before going oul on  Ihe Ice surface so wc do nol gel  gril on the ice. Nothing stops a  rock faster than a small piece of  gravel carried in on Ihe bottom  of a shoe.

Twelve learns will take  pari in Suncoast Cup VII, as  well as an added attraction this  year, a visit by the Vancouver  Canuck Oldtimers.  The hockey starts in earnest  early on the Friday evening,  continues from 7 am until 8 pm  Saturday, and ends Sunday with  all teams in play-offs. The two  'final' games are scheduled for  Sunday afternoon at 1:30 and 3  pm, followed by an entertaining  end to the weekend with the  Canuck Oldtimers facing off  against a mix of 'old stars' and  'new stars' from the Coast.  The Canucks have really  polished their act in recent years  and really put on an outstanding show for hockey fans of all  ages. With characters like Dune  Wilson, former net minder, and  Dave 'Tiger' Williams on  board, there should be no shortage of excitement.  This year the Suncast Cup  will have both returning champions back, the North Shore  Drillers, and the North Shore  Rusty Gulls. As well, there will  be three brand new teams  welcomed to their first Suncoast  Cup, two teams from Delta, the  Delta Classics and the Delta Old  Coots, and a team expected to  be a contender, entering their  first oldtimers tournament,  Team Nabisco.  Ex-Vancouver Canuck Darcy  Rota expects to suit up with this  squad, so that should be of  some interest and anticipation  for our local oldtimers.  The arena will be the place to  be all weekend, with the Scout  organization   offering   their  tremendous Pancake Breakfast  upstairs overlooking the ice,  served from 8 to II am both  Saturday and Sunday mornings.  Then the Breaker Wives take  over and offer loads of  homecooked delights upstairs in  the observation room.  Saturday night will be the second annual sportsmens dinner  and grand prize giveaway. Last  year this was an outstanding  evening, with a tremendous  smorgasbord dinner provided  by John Revington and his  caterers, guest speakers from  the sports world, loads of  tremendous prizes, including a  reverse draw for a $500 grand  prize and finally some dancing  to top the night off.  There will only be a limited  number of tickets available, as  many of the teams and their  wives have already purchased  theirs, so if you are interested in  taking part at the Sechelt Indian  Band Hall, $25 will get you a  ticket from any Suncoast  Breaker, or a few will be on sale  at Trail Bay Sports in Sechelt.  That is Saturday evening,  February 24 from 8 pm on.  With close to 200 visitors expected on this weekend, we  would like to thank those  businesses and merchants, in  advance for putting on  'specials' for the weekend, in  honour of the tournament, as  usual, Sechelt will continue to  be great hosts for this weekend.

The inconvenience was unfortunate but after several  vehicles hit the ditch safety  became the prime consideration.  Complaints of snowball  throwing have come from  around the town. In one incident last Wednesday when  school was dismissed early  youths broke the windshield of  a car moving along North  Road. A very hazardous occurrence police say. The youths  who threw the snowballs disappeared immediately.  Since February I two persons  have been charged with driving  while impaired and two were  given 24-hour suspensions.  These were ihe only ones apprehended. Police point out  they receive and respond to  numerous complaints of suspicious driving but often find no  trace of the vehicles complained  about.  After leaving a motor vehicle  for several days between  February I and 3 in a parking  lot at 666 Highway 101, the  owner returned to find the  windshield smashed. No suspects at this time. Phone any information you may have of this  occurrence to the RCMP.  Last Thursday evening police  were called to the Mariners'  Restaurant to stop a fight  among some customers.  Three out-of-town males  were arrested for being drunk in  public and lodged overnight in  cells. No charges are laid in  these cases.  A residence on Lockyer Road  was checked Friday, February  9, by police with a search "warrant and 280 marijuana plants  worth $50,000 were seized.  A 49-year-old Roberts Creek  resident is to appear in Sechelt  Court, February 20, charged  wilh possession and cultivation  of marijuana.

Contrary to what Mr.  O'Leary states, the Pender  Ratepayers is the largest community issues organization on  the Sunshine Coast and it has  done more than anyone else to  get the current Area A rezoning  exercise out in the open where  people can see how they will be  affected.  Most people heard about the  proposed master by-law for the  first time in the ratepayers  newsletter and the only chance  they've had to discuss it in  public was at the ratepayers  general meeting in Madeira  Park.  That meeting, which was attended by 150 people, debated a  resolution advising the regional  board to drop the rezoning bylaw and do a proper community  plan with full research of the  area's resources and the  residents' wishes as has been  done elsewhere in the regional  district.  It was argued that the by-law  was a "quick-fix" pulled out of  a drawer by the regional planning department, and would  "straight-jacket" the mixed  rural lifestyle residents had  fought to preserve over the  years.  Director Gordon Wilson said  if the resolution passed he  would take it as a direction to  have the board shelve the rezoning by-law in favour of a full  community plan. The meeting  voted overwhelmingly to do just  that.  Director Wilson did not keep  his promise. Instead he directed  his hand-picked rezoning committee to continue working on  the rezoning plan at unadvertis-  ed meetings as if nothing had  changed.  Ratepayers president Harrison was prodded to take part  in this activity, but attended only to say, quite rightly, that it  would be against the expressed  wishes of the ratepayer  membership to do so. He instead continued to demand the  regional district live up to its  obligation to give Area A  residents the same in depth  community planning it has  given residents of Langdale,  Gibsons, Roberts Creek,  Sechelt and Halfmoon Bay.  If there is a "small group involving too few people presuming to speak for the whole community" as Mr. O'Leary says,  the description better fits his  own rezoning committee than it  does the ratepayers, although  the committee members are for  the most part well-meaning  citizens who have been handed a  very hot potato by Director  Wilson.  The ratepayers have done  much to shed light on this issue  and will do more, but if Mr.  O'Leary sincerely feels the  public should have its chance to  "bitch and bicker" about the  zoning by-law, he should have  his own committee hold a public  meeting and tell everyone what  will be in store for them if this  drastic rewrite of the area's zoning goes forward.  I can guarantee Mr. O'Leary  if he does that his thirst for B&B  will be fully satisfied.  Howard White  Vice-President  PHDRA  Breakaway's position  Editor:  Il was staled in your  February 5 article on  Breakaway that we do nol seek  government grants. That is not  correct and I would like to explain our position.  Breakaway is a private social  program for alcohol or drug  abusing leens and their families.  The program is most effective  when the majority of funds  come from the community. If  the majority of funds come  from government, they then run  lite program and we lose the effect of reaching the teens where  they're al. If the program seems  to be loo much 'establishment'  nothing will turn these kids off  faster.  Penticlon Breakaway has an  approximate 70 per cent success  rale (18 months or more of  sobriety). However, addiction is  a lifelong illness and one is  always 'recovering'.  The teen years are emotionally painful and there's a real  danger when ihey slarl relying  on chemicals early in life to dull  this pain. The younger Ihey  start using, the more likely they  are to become addicted.  Chemicals surround our young  people and il is a painful world  oul there for many of them. Remaining sober is difficult to say  the least. As a community, we  need to give them the best  lighting chance that we can.

We keep cutting down trees  to make paper products to print  needless instructions and  booklets in two languages. All  levels of government look for  added monies and ways of  disposing of our waste materials  and cleaning up our waters of  pulp and paper mil! pollution.  The taxpayers must say  enough is enough. Our land Till  waste sites are already overflowing.  Mrs. I.M. Smith  Sechelt, BC  Council  advised  Editor:  RE: Gospel Rock  Whal prevents council from  saying 'No' to a developer?  Council is elected lo represent  the interests of ihe citizens and  taxpayers as a whole. They seem  reluctant lo do Ihis for fear of  being seen as 'jerking developers around'. Better lhal than  being seen as 'jerking citizens  and taxpayers around.'  In the case of Gospel Rock,  council must see lhal their opportunity to enhance Gibsons  and to serve Ihe public interest  is slipping away. Once again a  developer has taken Ihe in  itiative and is pressing council  for decisions which will lock up  future land use prematurely,  commit plans for roads and services prematurely and is taking  control for orderly development  out of the hands of elected officials (and its staff).  In the matter of Gospel  Rock, council need only say to  Mr. Killam's proposals, 'No,  not yet, don't call us, we'll call  you.*  N.B. Corbetl  For Gospel Rock  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following letter has been received for publication.  Mayor Diane Strom  Gibsons, B.C.  I am writing to you concerning the development of Gospel  Rock. There are many things  that concern me about the  development of this area. On  the mossy bluffs known as  Gospel Rock there are some  delicate wildflowers, White and  Chocolate Lilies. As children we  carefully gathered them at  Easter and I understand that  ihey are quite rare and on the  endangered list of wildflowers  now.  Historically this lookout has  been used by families of  fishermen to watch for their  return. Or anyone who had  friends coming to visit by sea.  From this vantage point I have  been able to observe Kingfishers  at work, watched Blackfish pass  by and even delighted in a furry-  little Marten on the rocks below  the road. With the lookout on  the Bluff now privately owned  this is the only remaining site  left lo view the Strait from.  The area above Gospel Rotk  is just as sensitive, these bluffs  should also be preserved for our  natural heritage. This area fci-  cludes the site of a will  established eagle nest and is a|o  the home of many squirrels aad  birds. The view from the top pf  this bluff is one of the nicest.  One can see all the way out lo  the ferry crossing and over tlje  bluff in Gibsons and around (o  the Strait with a view of trie  islands in the Gap including  Salmon Rock and Pophant.  This would make a wonderful  park. j  It is my opinion that the area  above Gospel Rock and Gospel  Rock itself should be preserved  as a natural park. As the leaders  of our community this is tl)e  kind of vision that the taxpayers  are looking for in your decisions. As a natural park Gospel  Rock would surpass Lighthouse  Park in West Vancouver. I implore you to recognize this  valuable asset in our community  and preserve it for future  generations to enjoy.  Janice Edmonds  Bob Messenger  Editor:  Once upon a time there was a  mine, Bob Messenger's mine,  copper and gold, and the chain  of title that binds Gospel Rock  goes back to Bob Messenger,  when we were young.  He would never reveal its  location to us kids when we had  words with him, simply point  with his cane to the bluff above  where he lived on Gower Point  Road.  Bob did not move with great  ease as he was club-footed and  when we were youngsters we  heard talk of Bob being light  fingered but it was the other  way round. Others were stealing  from him, which probably warranted the many locks he had  on gates, buildings, sheds and  Ihe like which made up his  acreage.  He was relieved of his timber  at a nominal return, according  to him. But, he still had thai  mine.  So a word to the developer;,  tread softly, 'there's gold in  them thar hills', which poses it  question and I'm sure Ml.  Messenger would have preferred to keep his mine, his arbutus  and his gospel! \  Dick Kennelt  Agreed |  Editor:  As residents of Gower Poini  Road, we are in complete agreement with our council in the  retention of Gospel Rock aid  some of the surrounding area as  a park site. ;  It has been assumed for mqre  than four decades thai this area  would be for the enjoyment ol  everyone and not to be used for  financial advancement of a feh.  Robert & Irene Jardijie  School Buses  Editor:  I see that Mr. Jakob Knaus,  in his unceasing attempts to  blame all the woes of the school  system on French Immersion,  has now seized upon the issue of  busing problems. He is, as  usual, barking up the wrong  tree.  In my four years as a French  Immersion parent, I've seen no  instances of students in the program being "pampered  with...privileges", as Mr.  Knaus claims; I do know,  however, of many students in  both English and French programs who are being poorly  served or in some cases not served at all by the school bus  system.  The inadequacy of the bus  service is not the fault of Ihe  French Immersion program or  any other program; il is the  fault of a contractor who will  nol provide enough buses ami a  school board thai seems unable  or unwilling to make him do ^o.  It you are truly concerrjed  about student transportation  Mr. Knaus, then stop flogging  French Immersion and start  looking at the bus service iiselt.  It's high time someone did.

Send your entries to reach the Coast  ; j News, Box 460, Gibsons by Saturday of this week. Last week's  I winner was Adam Sicofte Jr who correctly Identified an old  j', wagon on North Fletcher Road t top ol a garage.  Amnesty International (Al)  Group Number 160 (Sunshine  Coast) has adopted its first  prisoner of conscience. The  group has now begun writing  letters to Chinese authorities  urging them to release Zhang  Weiting, who was imprisoned  following student protests last  June.  An emergency meeting of the  local Al group was held in  Sechell on Friday night to coordinate action on behalf of the  25-year old student.  "We're excited about adopting our first prisoner," said  Sechelt member Reg Rowe.  "We have just completed a year  as an Al Group in Formation  and now we really have  something we can sink our teeth  into."  Mr. Rowe has accepted to be  the person responsible for the  prisoner dossier until the next  regular meeting of the group.  Rowe feels that it is appropriate  that a new group from BC be  assigned a case from China.  "BC has a substantial  Chinese community so we are  well-situated to handle this case.  Several of our members are now  writing to local and central  authorities requesting the immediate release of the young  man," he declared.  Zhang Weiting, a student at  the Zhejiang Fine Arts Institute  in Hangzhou (Zhejian Province) was arrested on June 18,  1989 in Jaishan county. On  August 26 the Hangzhou Intermediate People's Court  sentenced him to nine years imprisonment for 'counterrevolutionary propaganda and  excitement'.  He was the first student  known to have been sentenced  in connected with the mass  demonstrations. Zhang Weiting  admitted at his trial that he had  called a Voice of America  reporter and that he had drawn  eight cartoons villifying the  Communist Party and government leaders. However he did  not acknowledge that his action  was 'counter-revolutionary'.  "Amnesty's main concern is  that Zhang Weiting is not  reported to have used or advocated violence," explains  Roger  Lagasse,  chairman of  Sunshine Coast Al. "It appears  he has been imprisoned for the  peaceful exercise of his right to  freedom of expression."  Those two conditions have  led Al to classify Zhang Weiting  as a 'Prisoner of Conscience'  and to ask for his immediate  and unconditional release.  The next regular meeting of  Sunshine Coast Al will be held  on Wednesday, February ,21 at  7:30 pm at Sechelt Elementary.  Everyone is welcome.  The next regular meeting of  Amnesty International will take  place at 7:30 pm on Tuesday,  February 20, at the Rowe  residence in Sechlet. Everyone is  welcome.
