 Mi  V  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY 82 I  Parliament Buildings mMmaMmammmmmmMMMMMMBMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm  VICTORIA. B C        ~ ^l^l^a^a^a^a^a^.^.^.T4������TJ��T��  vev 1X4 g the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  25' per copy on news stands  The Sunshine  Delivered to every address on the Coast  1  February 17, 1981  Volume 35, Number 7  Lee and Vader appointed  Aquatic Society  seeks mandate  Director Charles Lee and Pender Harbour Aquatic Society  President Shirley Vader were formally appointed by the regional  board Thursday night to negotiate a settlement of the  misunderstandings that exist between the regional board, the  School Board and the Aquatic Society.  The appointments followed an address to the board by Society  President Shirley Vader, during which she called upon the board  to provide the Society with a clear mandate to operate the Pender  pool. Vader closed her address by turning over the key to the  facility and the receipt book to the regional board.  "Up until now," Vader said, "the Aquatic Society has carried  the full responsibility to get the pool constructed, operating and  maintained. The taxpayers of Area A seem to feel that we are  resoonsible authorities for looking after their interests with regard  to the pool. In fact, it has been made very clear to us by the  School Board and the Regional District that we have absolutely  no authority or say in this whole issue."  Vader stressed that the Aquatic Society did not close the pool,  but merely felt unable to continue to operate under the present  conditions.  Mayor Goddard, replacing absent Chairman David Hunter,  assured Ms. Vader that the sincerity of the Society's motives had  never been questioned and Director Charles Lee commended the  Society's decision to withdraw their services at the present time  because of the legal uncertainty of their mandate.  "The Aquatic Society was never given a legal mandate as  guardian of the pool and we could find ourselves in real difficulty  if an accident were to occur," Lee said.  Pender Harbour Director Joe Harrison appealed to public  officials to "avoid taking inflexible positions" and pointed out  that it is not possible to run the pool without a group like the  Aquatic Society because the money available for operating the  pool is inadequate to keep the pool open long enough for pool  rentals to offset the costs.  Director Harry Almond pointed out that the Pender pool is the  first instance of a Joint Use of Schools facility that requires ongoing operating funds. Past Joint Use expenditures have been  capital expenditures only.  Almond pointed out that School Board tax revenues are  raised over the whole school district and said he thought it  "doubtful that the School Board will apportion more money."  Sechelt Alderman Brian Stelck suggested that the regional  board should take it upon itself to make up the short fall between  the School Board figure and the $5000 counted on by the Society  out of the "Joint Use of Schools pot".  The board voted unanimously to have the legal relationship of  the board and the Aquatic Society clearly defined.  Lee and Vader plan to meet with School Board representatives  this week in an attempt to have the facility re-opened as soon as  possible.  Letter called "insulting"  Rocky triumphs!  ��. R. "Rocky" Mountain, the "Madman of Wilson Creek", will  get his money, all $68 of it. The regional board last Thursday  evening reversed two previous decisions and agreed to foot the bill  for repairs to Mr. Mountain's washing machine, damaged by silt  last August at a time when regional board work crews were  trenching Husdon Creek for a regional water line.  The board received, albeit reluctantly a letter from Mr.  Mountain containing a particularly pointed attack on Public  Utilities Committee Chairman Jim Gurney, who has consistently  opposed payment of the bill on the grounds that "it might set a  precedent."  Director Almond; who has supported Gurney's stand, moved  that the board refuse to receive the letter, calling it "garbled" and  "insulting to every director at this table."  "1 think we should receive it for the sake of comic relief,"  Director Harrison replied.  Director Lee, who recently visited Mr. Mountain on the site of  "the Husdon Creek Incident", agreed that the letter was insulting  but said he has found the author to be very different in person.

Approximately 200 Bald  Eagles in the Squamish area are in danger of starving,  according to Squamish Nature Centre biologist Jorma  Jyrkkannen.  The eagles' prime source of food, salmon in the Squamish  River and estuary, has been profoundly affected by recent  severe flooding in the area and Jyrkkannen is seeking  donations of food to keep them from starving or fighting  among themselves during the next few weeks.  If you have some frozen salmon in your freezer and are  willing to donate it to help save the eagles, please contact the  Coast News at 886-2622 or 886-7817 and leave your name  and number. Don't bring us the fish. You will be contacted  to arrange a convenient pick-up.  Meals on Wheels  The Meals on Wheels Program being instituted by the  Sunshine Coast Community Services Society will likely get  some financial help from the regional board.  Program Co-ordinator Linda Reeve addressed the board  briefly last Thursday, pointing out that the Village of  Gibsons has made a grant of $1000 toward the program and  that while the service is being initiated in Gibsons, plans are  already in the works to extend the area it covers to include  parts of Areas E and F within a five mile radius of the village.  The application was referred to the Finance Committee  with a request from Director Harrison that it be given "a  higher priority" than some of the other requests the board  has considered.  ^^j^^^5  ���      ''-'MS  '   ''   '��� ''/-'twatSkllPySfl  M^as^-^Lm  it  \\\\\f         ��* Jk       v *^.^l  ^Hd^B [��� /fimm*  W i ''Jim     ��^H  Ha .t^ffe]  1    m\^^**~^%\m\^m\\\\\m\m%.  ���i  '^W                          a^K                      i'3^|  a^a^a^a^a^a^a^Hai.^K.                                    ���'   ^* 1m               .H         '    Bt***  ���!  :IJ  ���  1  HI  ���   HS  ���  ��� Fran Bourasia photo  "This building is a tribute to the council and the town of Sechelt!', said Mayor Bud Koch at the official opening of the new  Municipal Hall.

"We've come a long way"  Sechelt celebrates anniversary  since the Village was incorporated in 1936 and residents that  have lived in Sechelt on or before that date for the important part  they played in shaping the Village.  j In the words of Sechelt's current mayor, Bud Koch, "What we  have today is because of the people here tonight and their  contributions to the Village of Sechelt."  Mayor Lorraine Goddard of Gibsons and Regional Board  and a long-time member of council, did the honours of presenting  "representative, Director of Area B, Peggy Connor, congratulated  commemorative scrolls to past and present members of council   the people of Sechelt on the occasion of their 25th Anniversary.  SCRD urged to "lead the way"  Regional Parks Study presented  To protect Chinook  Fishermen face  new restrictions  Concern over the stocks of Chinook salmon has prompted the  federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans to place restrictions  on both commercial and sports fishermen designed to protect the  largest of the salmon species.  Hardest hit by the hew regulations is the previously almost  unregulated sports fishery. Under date of February 13 and the  signature of local Fishery Officer L.K. Chambers the following  announcement has recently been issued:  "Effective midnight Sunday, February IS, 1981 and until  midnight Tuesday, June 30,1981, persons angling or trolling for  any species of salmon in the tidal waters of the west coast of  Canada will be prohibited from using downriggers and/or hand  gurdies with or without quick release devices."  In a following note to the above announcement 'hand gurdies'  are defined as being "any hand-operated reel or winch that is  affixed to a vessel and is used for bringing in a fishing line."  In a press release which pre-dated the announcement in hand-  gurdies the Department of Oceans and Fisheries Acting Director  General, Wayne Shintiers, said that conservation measures on  behalf of the Chinook salmon would affect both sports and  commercial fishermen.  In addition to the ban on downriggers, sports fishermen were  given a new bag limit of one chinook per day. Previously the limit  had been four per day. Also a Georgia Strait sports fishing closure  was announced on a trial basis for four months effective  December 1, 1981. Please turn to Page Twenty  "We've come a long way," said the master of ceremonies,  Morgan Thompson, at the dinner celebrating the 25th  Anniversary of the incorporation of the Village of Sechelt.  Besides the distinguished guests at the head table (see page 6),  many important people filled the Parthenon Restaurant Saturday  evening.  W.L. (Bill) Swain, who served as mayor of Sechelt for five years  Stuart Lefeaux, Parks Consultant to the Sunshine Coast  Regional District, presented the completed Regional Parks Study  to the regional board last Thursday night.  "If you're going to leave any heritage for your children, you  have to move now because it's going crazy," Lefeaux told the  board, "You have to provide parks at least 25 years ahead."  Chief among Lefeaux's recommendations was a suggestion that  the parks dedication required of subdivision developers be  doubled from 5% to 10% of the land to be subdivided or the same  percentage of the market value in cash in lieu of the dedication.  Lefeaux urged the SCRD to "lead the way" in the province by  requesting that the provincial government amend the Municipal  Act to double the parks dedication. Lefeaux also urged the board  to "really covet the waterfront" and take steps to ensure that  organizations which now hold large tracts of waterfront land as  "wilderness summer camps" are not allowed to sell off the land for  subdivisions.  Director Harry Almond suggested that the last of Lefeaux's  recommendations, that copies of the Parks Study be widely  circulated and further public input sought, be given highest  priority.  If the SCRD is prepared to request Letters Patent to enable it to  take a Parks Function, Lefeaux recommends that the Village of  Gibsons be invited to join the function and that the board consider  a five-year program of bond issues to raise $250,000 per year for  park purchases and development.  Lefeaux recommended the subdivision and sale of Provincial  Crown Lands be pursued to provide further funds and that a  development charge per lot be considered for subdivides to be  credited against the park acquisition fund.  "We're looking forward to the full co-operation of the  development industry on the coast," Director Harrison  commented drily, "In other words, we're expecting a lot of  screaming."  Lefeaux also urged that the board approach the provincial  government and urge the Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing  to provide boat-launching sites throughout the district. He  recommended that the Provincial Parks Division be requested to  proceed with plans for acquisition and development ofa campsite  Sandy Hook  water muddied  The Sandy Hook Water Company is threatening to sell the lot  on which the water tank and pump house of the controversial  water system is located, if the regional board does not come to an  arrangement with the Company before April Fool's Day of 1981.  Regional board directors last Thursday night raised the  possibility of easement rights and even of expropriation before  referring the letter from the Company's solicitor, H. D.C. Hunter,  to the Public Utilities Committee.  The piece of property in question, Director Lee observed, is  part of the original agreement reached between the board and the  Company before the Water Rights Branch stalled the legal  transfer of the system to the regional board because of  irregularities in the Company's reserve maintenance accounts.  The board also received a letter from Environment Minister  Stephen Rogers, supporting the stand taken by Water Rights  Comptroller H.D. DeBeck and pointing out that "the means by  Please turn to Page Twenty.  at Sargeant's Bay Beach and with a provincial park for the  Sakinaw Lake-Ruby Lake-Agamemnon Channel area. He also  recommended that the Provincial Forestry Ministry be requested  to undertake a scenic evaluation study of Sechelt Inlet and  consider the establishment of an Environmental Protection Area.  "The SCRD has unique potential to provide outstanding  outdoor recreation opportunities for all citizens and visitors,"  Lefeaux concluded, "The planning and acquisition of parks and  greenbelts is a continuing responsibility that needs dedication and  determination of all concerned to accomplish results."  Renegades thank  local merchants  Last year's B.C.

Almond and Lee  cross swords  Regional Directors Harry Almond and Charles Lee crossed  swords briefly at Thursday night's board meeting over a report on  the progress of Settlement Plans submitted by Almond in his  capacity as Planning Committee Chairman,  "This report is an obvious attempt to embarrass this Director,"  Lee charged, referring to a paragraph dealing with the slow  progress of some community plans.  "It is of note," the report states, "that some areas have had ���  Settlement Plan draft' (1st) in committee for a number of years,  about three years in one case. Two other areas after years in  committee have had only one or two public discussions on a first  draft. One area has not even commenced, in any way, to start ���  first draft. This situation is deplorable and reflects on the interest  and concern (or lack of) of the Area Director. For it is the Area  Director's responsibility to guide and direct, and facilitate the  acceptance of a workable development plan for his or her  community." p|else turn to Page Twenty  Lee tames  Pender Harbour  by Robi Peters  Pender Harbour, long known as a hot spot for its outspoken,  (sometimes quite wild) meetings, turned into a pussycat, with  Regional Director Charles Lee in charge.  Lee, very much the master of the situation and with a definite  twinkle in his eye, informed the full hall on how the meeting on the  settlement plan was going to be conducted. When those in  attendance were asked if they agreed, all were in favour and so the  meeting proceeded at an excellent pace.  Everyone was allowed to have his say on each item of the plan.  The planner Mr. Jim Johnstone who, I feel, coped very well said  certain suggestions from the last meeting before Christmas would  be considered and possibly implemented. The three major  changes would be in, and of the settlement  plan. For people who have asked, the last meeting before  Christmas was an official meeting. A lot of interest was shown in  policy which disallowed any water lot application for a  boathouse purpose. This applies to both fresh and salt water. A  conflict on both sides, it might just take a Solomon to solve this  one.  A few people spoke on the large 5 acre lots, and the need for  smaller building lots especially in Kleindale area, where soil  capabilities for septic tanks are the best in the area.  Howard White again insisted the harbour is polluted and any  kind of development will upset and disturb the balance of the  ecology. I'm afraid the balance was already on the downward  trend for shellfish in this area 18 years ago. We can't blame the  steady stream of people who have fled the city to live here. Every  new building has to abide by pretty stiff regulations to pass  inspections.  Another meeting to finish discussions on the settlement plan  will be announced shortly.

Second Class Mail Registration No. 4702  Of principals, priorities,  and the Pender experience  Well, now, the legalistic Vs' have been  crossed and the legalistic 'i's' dotted and  there stands our school board shining and  virtuous and right. They have not at any  time undertaken to help meet the operating  costs of the Pender Harbour swimming  pool. The minutes show them to be right  and any impression that the Pender  Aquatic Society had to the contrary must,  naturally, have been wrong.  Somehow the elected trustees have been  persuaded that it was a matter of  considerable importance that the school  board not be seen to be responsible for  community recreation. Never mind that  the regional board is planning to  contribute thousands of dollars so that  Roberts Creek can have a full-size  gymnasium. Never mind that the Pender  pool doubles as a water storage tank for  Are protection of Pender Harbour High  School.  It is, of course, highly commendable that  the school board should be so careful of  public funds that a public relations gesture  of support for the swimming pool which  helps heat their building and protect it  from fire is negated lest precedents be set.  One would be the more convinced of the  propriety of their actions if the public  dollar was so carefully guarded elsewhere.  What are we to make, for instance, of the  information that in the same week that the  school board so righteously and fastidiously pointed out that the burden of  support for the Pender pool lay elsewhere  it could find the funds to send a dozen and  a half of its principals and senior  administrators for a couple of days to the  International Plaza in North Vancouver  on an 'educational retreat'?  There in a huge hospitality suite1  presided over by Superintendent John  Denley and with principals provided with  spending money and free rooms did our  educational leaders meet in expensive  conclave. As a matter of fact Denley was  still there at school district expense on  Monday morning before going off  elsewhere at school district expense on  business for the Department of Education.  It is safe to assume that the two days  spent by the principals at the International  Plaza���four for Denley���cost the local  taxpayer at least as much as could not be  found for the Pender Aquatic Society. We  must question the educational priorities of  a school board which splits financial hairs  about support for a brand-new swimming  pool which is acknowledged to save the  school board maintenance money, but  behaves with unstinting largesse when it  comes to providing two days in town for  local principals.  It is time for John Denley to stop hiding  behind the skirts of the Secretary-  Treasurer and to justify himself. There is  an increase of 24% in the budget of the  school district this year and another  administrator, yet another, is being sought  and it seems that the school trustees have  accepted such increases in a quiescent  fashion.  Meanwhile, the school board has the  pool in its basement and the regional board  has the bills. It is a slap in the face not only  to the Pender Aquatic Society but to the  promising concept of Joint-Use of  Schools. Any future dealings with the  school board should be closely inspected  by other participants. Why local taxpayers  should raise the money and then turn  facilities over to the control of the  Department of Education in Victoria and  those locally who seek to ingratiate  themselves with it is a question we all might  do well to consider in light of the Pender  experience.  ..from the files of the COAST NEWS  'ewewemlkejr  FIVE YEARS AGO  Not available.  TEN YEARS AGO  Under the new presidency of Larry  Labonte, the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce offered their  support to organizations involved in  combatting the drug menace in this  area.  From the legislature Wednesday  morning Honourable Isabel Dawson  informed the Coast News that the  Minister of Recreation and Conservation announced the opening up of  Skookumchuk Rapids Park near  Egmont.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  Sechelt boat harbour is one of the  eight announced in federal government public works estimates for the  West Coast. The cost will be $215,000  and includes construction of a stone  mound breakwater, together with the  dredging of a basin in the lee of the  breakwater.  A public meeting will be held to  launch the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre  in the Roberts Creek Hall.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  The recently installed siren system  at Garden Bay roused Pender Harbour's Volunteer Fire Brigade to  Ernie's Bay, (one mile distance) within  twelve minutes of the alarm. Efficient  work saved the hull of a brand new 39  foot gillnetter owned by Ernie Lee,  Harbour fisherman.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  "The present cost of a car and driver  from Powell River to the city of  Vancouver is $16.10 return," wrote  Tony Gargrave MLA for Mackenzie in a  letter seeking a reduction in ferry fares  to George Pallin of the Black Ball  Ferries.  Fire destroyed the home of Len  Coates on Payne Road outside Gibsons on February 15. Len Coates is  president of the Howe Sound Farmer's  Institute and an active worker with the  Fair Board.

Bridge and  Dredging Company Ltd. are now  renovating and preparing the plant for  operation and the opening is set for  May.  More than 80 lots owned by Union  Steamship Company will be turned  back to acreage according to a  company spokesman. Stretching out  from the Sechelt Tearoom to Norm  Burley's property, the reversion will  cancel out the area known as Teredo  Street.  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  In protest against the deplorable  conditions of the roads between  Gibsons and Pender Harbour, a four-  man delegation travelled to Victoria for  a meeting with E.C. Carson the Public  Works Minister. The delegation consisted of J. Veitch, president of the  Gibsons and District Board of Trade,  A.E. Ritchey of Sechelt and District  School Board, Harry Sawyer representing Howe Sound and Pender  Harbour Truckers and Taxi Association, and Ernie Parr-Pearson of the  Coast News.  The delegation was not particularly  satisfied as Carson felt that the  delegation was exaggerating the  conditions of the road but it was still  felt that some progress was made as  Carson promised to visit the district as  soon as possible.  Slate Creek, Jervis Inlet, 1930's. Eric Gustavson Logging had contrived to take this  Climax locomotive ashore. Hand cut timber was swung to trackside and loaded  aboard skeleton cars by wood-burning steam donkeys. They and the locey required  only wood and water for their energy. By the time all first growth trees within reach  were cut, rails had been laid for several miles up this spectacular valley. When this  track was removed about 1940, railway logging along the mainland coast was  coming to an end. Gustavson Logging moved its enormous steam monkeys to the  nearby Deserted River Valley, but the Climax locomotive was replaced by trucks.

He was usually drunk when he  said it and used it as the pause  which refreshes but it remains  first class advice just the same.  We spend so much of the time  in debate or discussion with  participants having only the  vaguest idea of what they  themselves are taking about  and virtually no idea what the  other fellow is talkingabout. In  the process much heat may be  generated, some eloquence  expended, but the parties  usually achieve little in the way  of mutual enrichment or enlightenment.  With this in mind, then, I  thought I'd take a stab at  elucidating what it is I mean  when and if 1 should use the ill-  defined terms currently bandied about when politics are  under discussion. I make no  claim that any definition  appearing here is the only  definition possible but at least  the definition given should  hopefully clarify what my  understanding is.  Free enterprise is a term  which deals historically with  economics but in the vagueness  of current usage is mis-used as  a synonym for political democracy. The term has its roots in  the 18th century when its great  advocate, Scotsman Adam  Smith, produced his Wealth of  Nations. The book was written  in a Europe which was royalist  and much corruption and  inefficiency was the norm in a  ��ystem which saw monopolies  dispensed by monarchs to  their favourites. It was Adam  Smith's argument that society  would be better served if the  royal monopolies were broken  up and competition for business allowed, thereby freeing  the initiative of many. He was  absolutely right and an explosion of economic and industrial  progress followed. It is worth  remembering, however, that  many of the exponents of 'free  enterprise' today are representatives of giant monopolies the  size of which would have  stunned Adam Smith. This is  an important point for while it  is conventional wisdom that  free enterprise is more efficient  than government enterprise  and possibly it is still as true as  it was in Adam Smith's day,  some of the giant private  companies have bureaucracies  which rival in size that of the  majority of the world's governments and whose aims are  as narrowly selfish as the  economic favourites of the  eighteeth century courts.  Socialism entered the economic vocabulary about a  century after free enterprise  did. Again, its birthplace was  Scotland. The thrust of the idea  was to bring something of  social justice and sharing to the  industrial piracy and people  abuse which came along with  the Industrial Revolution. In  its 19th Century beginnings the  word was clearly associated  with democratic and nonviolent change. Its intent was  the loosening of the stranglehold of privilege and exploitation in which the early workers  of the Industrial Revolution  were held. Later it became  associated with the violent  revolution which took place in  Russia and still later was  expropriated by Adolf Hilter  for his National' Socialist or  Nazi party and it took on  overtones of government repression and extremism which  bedevil it yet. Despite the fact  that there have been effective  and non-repressive socialist  governments for generations in  Europe, the term is still  regarded in North America as  the antithesis of all that is  freedom-loving and just.  Democracy is a much older  term than either of the two first  discussed, coming to us from  Ancient Greece long before the  birth of Christ. It means a  government which is regularly  chosen by the governed and  generally speaking is a term in  high favour everywhere. Regimes which have a communist  economy lap claim to being  democratic; regimes which  have an anti-communist or  'free enterprise' economy lay  claim to being democratic. In  common parlance the issue is  further confused by the blending together of the existing  economic and political meanings understood by the term  with some religious connotations. Frequently in North  America a democracy is understood to mean an elected  government in a free enterprise  economy in a country which  pays at least lip-service to  Christianity. Needless to say it  has other meanings in countries  which claim to be democratic  but have a different economic  system and a different prevailing religion or lack of religion.  So the poor over-burdened  word staggers along bearing  meanings not its own, espoused  by warring factions all over the  world. The concept of the  governed choosing the governors, however, is still one that  stands the test of time and  shorn of the overburden of  meanings unrelated it is often  caused to carry, this is a  political term rightfully at the  centre of most meaningful  political debate.  Well enough for this week.  This is a partial list, of course,  and there is plenty of rampant  terminological confusion left  contributing to the general  frustration which is felt whenever politics is discussed.  "Define your terms," said  Jimmy and in truth it may serve  to shed light where otherwise  was only heat.

A nd though I know In my head  It's the company's fault  I am busy  plotting  the best way to pick a fight.  Bronwen Wallace  from the book "Going for Coffee"  published by Harbour Publishing  Slings & Arrows ��  George Matthews  ?f  As a class of folks, barbarians do not have a particularly good reputation. The  Goths were not often invited  to tea. The Vikings rarely  made The Times society  page. Genghis Khan would  not have been a welcome  guest at a debutante's ball  and the sack of Rome did not  have great reviews.  For all of their nasty little  habits however, barbarians do  have a way of changing  things. Sleepy little civilizations have been known to  become quite energetic and  ambitious following a visit or  two by a barbaric horde.  There's nothing like a little  rape and pillage, I suppose, to.  change a society's point of  view. I recall, too, some  romantic poet or other mentioning how disappointed one  social group was when it was  left entirely alone by the  barbarians.  The dictionary seems fairly  convinced of the idea that a  barbarian is someone who  appears to be less refined than  the person who is being  barbarized. This definition  would seem to suggest two  things: first, that the victims  of barbarism are somewhat  snobbish; and second that a  .barbarian may be just about  anyone that a person doesn't  approve of - whether he is  wearing animal skins and a  horned helmet or not.  I saw a barbarian just the  other day; in fact I saw  several. I was visiting, as is  my wont from time to time, a  sleepy little civilization just  down the road. I even had the  privilege of being permitted  into the castle keep where the  last few remnants of the  formerly tough, energetic  civilization were huddled together protecting one another  from the inevitable onslaught  with beer and bravado. As for  the barbarians, they were  outside in the fresh, invigorating air, driving around in  plainly marked vehicles and  pounding stakes into the earth  with signs marked "Sold" or  "For Sale" attached.  I must admit that the  barbarians I saw were not a  particularly menacing looking  crew. In truth I actually spoke  to one and I wasn't threatened  with so much as a pillage or a  plunder. As a class of people,  they were in fact surprisingly  unimpressive; mostly the  wrong end of middle age,  mostly overweight and mostly  kind of pink and soft looking.  The one I spoke to was rather  tackily attired; he struck me as  the sort who might wear a  tuxedo to a football match and  a sweatshirt to a cocktail  party.  When I asked my barbarian  how things were going, he  beamed all over and told me  that land values had never  been higher and "things were  finally moving in this little  burg". When I said to him  that what I meant was "Are  you having a good day? Is  your spirit rejoicing? Does the  beauty of this place uplift  you?" He replied that this is  where he worked and got rich-  he'd rejoice in Puerto Vallarta.  Although he was obviously  a busy man (a sure sign of  your average barbarian) 1  asked him if he put back into  the community everything he  took out. He replied with  appropriately barbaric vehemence that he was a member of  five committees, two councils  and a commission and "if the  jerks in this town are too damn  lazy to get in there and  participate then it's their own  tough luck I"  Feeling mildly threatened  by the vigour of my barbarian's response, 1 quickly  changed subjects. I asked him  what kind of work he did.  He told me that he was a land  developer. He sold property  and built houses. When I  suggested that carpentry and  house construction were certainly honorable occupations,  he became quite barbaric  again and more than hinted  that any idiot could hammer  nails; he learned at three  years of age and hadn't  touched   a   hammer   since.  Noticing that I had become  quite intimidated by his  aggressive manner, he uncharacteristically mellowed.  He told me how I too could  "make myself a few bucks and  get out of this one horse  town". He said that the way to  be successful in a place like  this is to buy a piece of  property, build a house and  then put it up for sale. Then,  you put your present house up  for sale at the same time.  When one sells, move to the  one that didn't, then build  another. I'm glad my landlord  wasn't listening in, she would  have been appalled at the  notion that I would sell her  house.  My barbarian went on to say  that a good wheeler-dealer  never owns anything he  isn't willing to sell and that if  I followed his good advice I  could be spending six months  of every year in Baja.  Suitably terrified by his  barbaric machinations, I  retired to the castle keep with  my poor remains of friends.  We encouraged each other  with stories about what fine  and decent people we were  and thanked God how fortunate we were not to have  been overcome by greed and  avarice. We looked out over  the bay and recalled the times  when yonder spit of land was  treed wilderness, inhabited  by nothing more than squirrels and boys. We traded  stories of the latest horror  committed by the barbarians  and even in our sloth and  gluttony and pride we finally  convinced ourselves how awful greed and avarice were.

The bad news is that we won't be able  to drive because we can't afford the new insurance rates I  Letters to the Editor  Land, the good and the bad  Editor:  It was with odd feelings that I  read your article in Feb. 3rd  Coast News under the hearing:  Gibsons position land freeze  thwarts development. The cry  of the Nation today is Energy  Crisis, then the increase of  Housing and Lots (double in  one year); no mention yet by  our political leaders of the  world food crunch next in line.  One of the needs of our future  generations; wait till we see  potatoes $1 per lb., beef $8 Ib.  etc. It is saddening indeed to  hear the Mayorand her council  take the position that the  agricultural land freeze will  impede the development of  Gibsons, while in the same  paper Council is advertising the  intention to include into Gibsons a finger of Block 690 in the  ALR, with the knowledge that  this area is in Area E Community Plan to be retained as  Agriculture Green Belt Buffer  Zone. Much has to be said  about the Land Freeze.  At its time of implication  land was frozen on its boundaries to protect this land.  Development of needed parts  of the land could be removed  by the Land Commission. The  sad part of this being that the  Land Commission was to be  impartial people with knowledge of agriculture and free of  political influence. Today the  politicians see fit to go over the  heads of the Land Commission. People who couldn't even  produce a sack of potatoes are  using their power to increase  the price of the land. Land that  in the near future will be  necessary even in small farms  to produce food for future  generations.  The mayor of Sechelt stated  his feelings very clearly. Thank  goodness now and again you  see someone in politics that  looks to the future, not to the  greed of Land Developers. As  to the Land Owners in this  situation, they bought the land  \  while under the A.L.R.,(one of  the oldest homesteads in the  area) which incidentally during  and before the Hungry 30's,  and for years after, produced  tons of beef, thousands of  gallons of milk, tons of garden  produce and small fruits. This  being done with only about one  third of the property being  cleared, and was most certainly  appreciated by the people in the  area to meet their needs. With  only about 5% of B.C. Land  suited for agriculture it is time  people thought of the preserva  tion of this type of land for  things yet to come. Not for a  tax base for developers who  have no regard for agriculture.  We must be careful of fingers  extended into areas such as  this, for if it occurs, it is just a  matter of time before City  Fathers request their boundaries straightened and good-bye  to a few hundred acres of Farm  Land.  Good luck to all, have a nice  lunch of sawdust and dollar  bills.

If we are talking about  numbers and names I would  like to point out that the  following people who would be  directly affected by this  takeover, are quite happy with  the status quo and do not want  to participate in any change  involving boundaries: Mr. &  Mrs. J. Johnston, Mr. & Mrs.  W. Wiren, Mr. & Mrs.  Kitson, Mr. & Mrs. N.  Stewart, Mr. & Mrs. D.  Stewart, Mr. J. Hind-Smith,  Mr. T. Archer and perhaps  two absent property owners.  There are also a number of  people who would be Indirectly affected but who are  strongly opposed to any such  move by Gibsons Village.  It is probably beyond the  comprehension of the village  fathers why anyone would not  want to join them but the only  "advantage" that I can see to  those affected by this proposal  would be a probable doubling  of taxes and maybe more  and that the land presently  protected by the A.L.R.  would be covered by black  top and housing and who in  their right minds wants that?  Perhaps we are all simple  Rocky says  thank you  Ed. note: We have received  a copy of the following brief  letter addressed to the SCRDi  Gentlemen:  To all regional board directors; thank you for your wise  decision on my behalf and a  special thanks to Mr. Charles  Lee for his persistence in  digging out the truth.

Hind-Smith  Support for  Land Reserve  Editor's Note: We have  received a copy of the following letter to:  Sunshine Coast Regional  District  Wharf Street, Sechelt, B.C.  VON 3AO  Dear Sir:  It has been brought to my  attention that the village of  Gibsons is planning to request  the Minister of Municipal  Affairs for an extension of  municipal boundaries. The  area under consideration is  located in Regional Area "E",  and borders on Payne Road.  As owner of Parcel 5033 in  District Lot 6901 feel obligated  to inform you of my opinion of  this proposal. My concern  revolves around three basic  points: the agricultural potential of this land; the overall  development of District Lot  690; and, the planning problems associated with the  proposed amalgamation.  As you are aware, the parcels  concerned are lots 5 and 6 in  plan 12540 which together  occupy 40 to 50 acres of prime  agricultural land. Due to the  agricultural potential of this  land it is under the jurisdiction  of the Agricultural Land  Commission. 1 fully support  the aims and policies of the  Agricultural Land Reserve. At  present, the parcels in question  are hobby farms, but, they  possess the potential of becoming major agricultural  developments in the future. It  would be a grave mistake not to  consider the future potential of  this area. These parcels are  located on some of the most  arable land on the southern  Sunshine Coast. We must look  toward the future.  When the Area "E" Official  Settlement Plan is completed it  will almost assuredly promote  the continued inclusion of this  land in the Agricultural Land  Reserve. At this point, I wish to  relate the aforesaid information to the current situation  confronting us.

Dapper. Bird and several other  members of that loose group of  salad-day pals known collectively as "The Gang." We are a  somewhat-naive and decidedly  non-combative clique. One of  the fringe-members is a dark  kid known (with casual racism)  as Wop. despite his Scotch  anccstrs Wop has an idea.  "Hey. that factory I work at's  throwinga dance at the Stanley  Park Pavilion tonight. They  said I can bring a few friends.  Why don't you guys come  along. There'll be a lot of stag  broads and I told you about  some of the broads in that  plant!"  He has certainly told us  about the girls he works with  and. even allowing for exaggeration, they should intriguing.  It is by far the best suggestion  anyone has come up with, this  draggletail Saturday and we  take him up on the invitation  unanimously. About eight of us  pile aboard a downtown rattler  and head for Stanley Park.  Loud, swing music is pounding from the brightly lit hall,  shaking the sylvan quiet and  probably scaring hell out of the  animals. The middle-aged lady  who is taking tickets, eyes us a  bit oddly but she accepts our  money. We troop into the  crowded hall to look the  situation o\er. Almost immediately, I see Wop's face so  strange. He gazes around in  complete confusion. "Hey.  man.   something's   wrong.   I  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  don't know any of these  people."  The crowd is mostly thirtyish  and older. A lot of the men look  like ex-Army types and several  of them are staring pointedly in  our direction. Wop queries  someone and returns with an  abashed look. "We got the  wrong hall..This is some kind of  Rod and Gun Clubdeal. I think  we better get out of here."  We begin a discreet retreat  towards the entrance, tracked  by a growing number of hostile  eyes. Suddenly. 1 see a tall guy  with a crew-cut pointing at me.  "Hey, 1 know that punk!" he  shouts. "Lives around my  neighbourhood. He's a real  troublemaker. Let's teach him  and his hood friends not to  crash decent peoples' dances!"  It is like a war-cry. Crew-cut  and a large number of his  buddies start moving menacingly in our direction. We exit  those unfriendly premises a  damn sight faster than we  entered and head off at a dead  run. At least fifty guys come  boiling through the door after  us. like a Southern lynch-mob,  howling curses and threats,  they sound really out for blood.  It'll be worth our skins if they  catch us.  Luckily, we have a slight  head-start. Also we are considerably younger and less-  drunk than most of our pursuers. I haven't run this far or  hard since 1 was a kid but then I  have never been chased by a  V  Friday  Dinner Special  &*'  Mousaka  with Greek Salad  Our own  Chocolate Eclairs  V  Reservations Advised  885-9962  mob of booze-crazed rednecks  before. Most of them give up  early bul a few diehards harry  us all the way to Lost Lagoon  before throwing in the towel.  We keep going until we are  right out of the park and skid  panting to a slop under a  streetlight. "What do you say?"  inquires Wop brightly when we  have caught our breath. "You  guys want to try and find the  right dance?"  His suggestion is unanimously rejected, the rest of us  have had enough exercise and  excitement for one night. I am  feeling obscurely guilty to boot.  I seem to have inadvertently  triggered the whole thing by my  very appearance. Who is this  nameless creep 1 keep getting  taken for? I wish he'd get a facelift or fall off a bridge. It's crazy  but I'm beginning to actively  dislike someone I don't even  know.  There are no further incidents for almost a year. This is  due in part to the fact that I am  now working in the logging-  camps and spending a good  deal of my time stumbling  around upcoast sidehills. My  brother Chris and I are working at the same camp. It is  relatively close to Vancouver  and we have come into town for  the weekend. It is Sunday, the  dust of our brief binge has  settled and it is time to face the  prospect of heading back.  Paul Milaux. the cook from  our camp, has come down with  us and is staying at a different  hotel across the street. He has  asked us to give him a call  around noon. We relinquish  our cheap rooms and go to  roust him out. It is to our  advantage. If he misses the bus,  we are liable to be cooking our  own grub.  Paul, a small French Canadian, is sitting on the edge of his  rumpled bed with no shirt on  and a glass in his hand. He is a  considerable alcoholic but a  pretty damn good cook for all  that. "Have an eye-opener,  boys." he invites, indicating a  near-full jug of whiskey.  We figure, for expediency's  sake, we had better give him a  hand with it or we may never  get him down to the depot. We  have just settled back with our  rye and tap-water when there is  an authoritative rap on the  door. "Police! Open us!"orders  a stern voice.  Two immense, plain clothes-  men shoulder through thedoor  that Paul has nervously opened. They stand gazing around  suspiciously. "Where the hell  were you two guys, last night?"  demands one of them suddenly,  fixing me with a steely glare. He  is towering, lantern-jawed and  all cop. His bald, paunchy  partner stands nodding behind  him, an equally-menacing look  on his jowly face.  Chris and 1 are totally  nonplussed. Certainly, we had  prowled a few bars, the night  before but there had been no  out-of-the-way incidents. "We  were just having a few beers  with some friends," says Chris.  "What's the problem?"  "You guys look too youngto  be drinking," observes the  lantern-jawed cop, "but that's  not what we're here about. A  man was rolled in the can at the  Royal Hotel, last night. Couple  of punks took a hundred bucks  off him and worked him over  pretty good. The description he  gave us fits you guys like a  glove, same clothes, everything."  "We don't know anything  about it," I blurt in alarm.  "We're just in town for the  weekend and we're heading  back today. Ask Paul here. He  works at the same camp."  "That's the truth what he  says." mutters the Frenchman.  But the daunting presence of  the law has thrown him into a  nervous snit and he doesn't  sound too sure of it himself.  "Go fetch the guy up here,"  says the biggest cop to his  partner. "We'll let him have a  look at 'em close up." He turns  to us. "You boys just sit tight. If  he does a positive make, you're  in trouble."   To be continued.

It re-enters this sign in November for a prolonged visit of  seven years.  Don't expect planned activities to run smoothly this  week.  ARIES (March 21-Aprfl 19)  Full Moon coincides with  unexpected health or employment upsets. Your unconventional viewpoints now have  a disruptive influence where  you perform daily tasks. Seek  professional reassurance regarding stomach or other  digestive complaints. Prepare  to receive strange news from a  distance. March 21 birthdays  must switch to a more original  approach.

Virgos born Aug. 23 are  affected most strongly by  current lunar alignment.  LIBRA (Sept 23-Ort 23)  Full Moon reveals results of  secret negotiations or behind-  the-scenes activities. Unexpected correspondence or  phone call may announce  decision regarding hospitalized, confined, or neglected  person.  Those of you anticipating  peace and quiet in secluded  spot will have to handle noisy  intruders. Child becomes  source of happiness for Librans  bom Oct. 8-17.  SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)  Full Moon demands modifications to your long-range plan  owing to unexpected financial  news. Obligation to assist old  friend or acquaintance becomes added drain on resources. Report prepared by local  officials or group may further  jolt your sense of security.  Uranus out of your sign for five  weeks means an opportunity to  rearrange personal affairs on a  more conservative level.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec  21)  Rebellious, independent Uranus enters your sign for five  weeks offering a sample of  conditions you may experience  from late 1981 to 1988. Sagit-  tarians bom Nov. 23 are  already feeling the full impact  of this planet's location. Meanwhile, Full Moon coincides  with sudden changes in status,  local reputation or career  expectations. Persons bom  Dec. 1-6 should continue to  guard home against fire and  vandals.  CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19)  Full Moon highlights unusual conditions far away.  Long-distance message speaks  of elderly person's sudden but  necessary confinement. Looks  like you'll have much to say  regarding locally-offered skills  improvement classes. Cap-  ricomian students are in the  mood to quit dull courses and  seek out more practical educational pursuits. If possible  postpone any air-travel till next  week.  AQUARIUS (Jan 2��-Feb 11)  Full Moon helps disrupt  close associates' financial situation. Result is a sudden switch  in your long-range plans, hopes  and wishes. Your banker,  insurance agent, accountant or  neighbourhood loan-shark will  also announce surprise developments. As usual, so-called  friends are nowhere to be found  when you need instant cash  backing. Aquarians bom Feb.  6-14 attract romance and  tokens of appreciation.  PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 2*)  Full Moon finds close associates and business partners  in highly emotional states.  Looks like loved one and daily  companions resent your upcoming change in status.  Everyone suspects you're influenced by older, irresponsible  person who should know  better. Married Pisces persons  bom Feb. 19 are forced to  resolve present emotional  crises. Feb. 28-March S birthdays have the courage to put  down all competition.  ��  SUNSHINE  KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411 Gibsons,  He len '.s Fashion S h o p p e  1 tmei (  8S6-9941  Copper Kettle  Specials  Various Candies  Specially Priced  Jellies, Ribbon Candy, Suckers, etc.  It's Ice Cream Cone  Time Again  Treat Yourself to Some  "Old-Fashioned" Ice Cream  Hours:  Tues. ��� Sat., 11 am - 4 pm  Gibsons Landing  886-7522 Coast News, February 17, 1981  A rare lyric gift  Off the  shelf  by John Moore  Maureen McCarthy's first  book of poems, She Reminds  Me of Venneer came across  my desk recently courtesy of  Howard White of Harbour  Publishing. McCarthy has a  short but impressive list of  credits; poems in this collection have appeared in  Event, FMdlehead, Waves,  Descant, Poetry Canada Review, and the anthology  Storm Warning 2.  I remember her name from  reading Poetry Canada Review, but I confess I have no  memory of the poem I read.  The first time I read through  most of She Reminds Me of  Venneer, none of the poems  struck me as particularly  memorable either. It wasn't  until I started re-reading  poems at random that I  realized what I might have  missed.  McCarthy has a rare lyric  gift that is often masked  in her poetry by a calm,  detached tone that makes the  poems seem flat if read too  quickly. It is a tone that we  are too little accustomed to in  Canadian poetry. We respond  more readily and rapidly to the  immediate and arresting violence of subject that characterizes the work of Pat Lane,  Margaret Atwood, even Leonard Cohen, or to the verbal  pyrotechnics of Milton Acorn  or Pete Trower.  The reflective stance in  poetry and in art in general,  has    become    much    more  characteristic of Oriental civilization than of Western  culture, but there are flashes  of it here and there; in Classic  Greek sculpture before the  Hellenic decadence set in,  in the poetry of Wallace  Stevens and, of course, in the  static but compelling paintings of Vermeer.  "a glancing girl/ she  reminds me of Vermeer./  Have you seen the paintings  of Vermeer?/ perhaps he was  an old man/ no one would  have noticed/ quite ordinary/  his neighbours may have  thought/ the leaves this  morning/ showed their silver  sides/ as if they thought my  eyes were special/ but only,  for a moment."  Like Vermeer or the early  Greek sculptors, McCarthy  pares the moment down to  its essence. There is seldom a  sense of movement in her  poems, but rather of a gathering of carefully selected small  images to form a single larger  image that is the poem itself.  A spider weaves his way/  between the rocking chair and  the fireplace/ in and out of  nocturnes/ the radio seems  sad tonight,/ mother sets off,/  a little pale,/ a little unsure,/  in her finest coat,/ a quarter  moon slips into the sky/  as if sliding into a blue-black  bowl,/ a slow Wind stirs the  trees/ to mild surprise, to  questions;/ "Why should one  be restless?/ why should one  be frightened?"  Reading She Reminds Me of  Venneer reminds the reader  that there is more to poetry  than the verbal and emotional  blitzkrieg tactics that currently  dominate the art in this  country.  In his introduction, Al  Purdy compares McCarthy to  Emily Dickinson and says  "I have the sense of seeing  things with her eyes and  mind, of actually being in her  situation, and it's this kind of  intimacy that gives her poems  power. And they do have a  very tactile kind of power,  unconscious of its own effect;  they touch and leave fingerprints somewhere". Thanks,  Al.  A word of praise for Pender  Harbour publisher Howard  White as well. Once again he  has introduced a new voice to  Canadian literature, one that  will unmistakably be heard  from again in years to come.  A word too about production: She Reminds Me of  Venneer is Number Five in  Harbour Publishing's inexpensive "Harbour Lights  Books" series. Printed by  Pulp Press and square-bound  it's a notable improvement  over the stapled chapbooks  with which the series began.  With the rising costs of  printing and production, putting poetry into the hands of  people at a less than extortionate price is no easy  task. However, poetry, more  than any other form of writing,  is re-read again and again  and nobody buys a book that  looks like it's going to self-  destruct before you've finished reading it. All for now.

Book Look  by Murrie Redman  Out-of-Sight-Games by Len and Nancy Maar, Doubleday  1981, $9.95.  It is not easy to find genuinely amusing party games for adults  or adolescents, but this book contains some that appear hopeful,  they are thematic, for party planners who like that sort of thing,  and active enough to encourage mixing.  Because most of the games are quite lively, either the outdoors  or a large indoor space is necessary. The games include the relay  and treasure hunt type, but all require the ability to overcome an  obstacle while carrying out a task or game-skill. For example, in a  game called "Monster Fingers", the players on the relay team  must pick up balloons and carry them on paper towelling  extensions to their fingers. Another one, has members trying to  move quickly together while holding spaghetti pieces between  them. It is called "Lifeline".  Len and Nancy Maar suggest a space theme, but the game  names could be changed to suit any. The theme approach is fun  because everything from invitations to food can follow. The ideas  may be old, but they take on a new look within a theme.  The worst enemy of teenagers is boredom. They like their games  active with some friendly competition. Having experienced the  odd adult party die a slow death caused by sheer monotony, it  might be fun to try games to liven things up. I understand that  there is a mini-Olympiad on the slopes of Selma Park each year,  proving that big kids like to romp around, too!  Authors, Len and Nancy Maar have to their credit a number of  books for kids. Illustrator John Lane adds to the spirit with lively  drawings showing exactly how to play. This happy little book  should not be too far away from young, active teens who like fun.

Do the words  "verbal commitment" and  "Gentleman's Agreement"  stand for anything of value?  Or is it just an idea, words  people used to believe in?  The Pender Harbour Aquatic  Society Directors feel this  commitment to Area A and are  willing to stand and fight for  their principles.  Through the political hassles, between the SCRD and  the School Board regarding  the pool, the Pender Harbour  Aquatic Society has always  believed that the betterment  of Area A and children's  welfare were the board's  prime concern. Evidently it  wasn't. The society has had its  fingers rapped by both boards  for trying to solve the problems arising out of the fact  both boards have as yet not  signed any agreement for the  Joint Use Facility. The society  has almost begged both  boards to meet and come to  agreement. To date no agreement has been signed.  1 know it was with deep  regret the Aquatic Society  came to the decision to turn  the keys of the Aquatic Centre  over to the Regional board. It  hurt a lot of people - emotionally and financially. It is the  feeling of the Society it can  no longer operate the pool,  the way things stand right  now. It has always put the  rights of the taxpayers of Area  A first and foremost. The  Society feels the Regional  District should not sign the  fifth draft of the Addendum  (between  the  School   Board  and Regional Board) as it is  written at the moment, as it  is not in the best interests of  Area A.  To date, the school board  has not honoured its commitment to the Pender Harbour  pool, to maintain the School  Board's water tank. Consider  the loss of your children's  swimming lessons because the  School District cannot allow  Pender kids any extra swimming time that the rest of the  district cannot have, the fact  that pool personnel maintain  the school water tank all year,  and that when the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Centre closes for the summer, and would  normally drain the pool for  two months, they spend eight  hours a week, for approximately ten weeks, unpaid  labour in care and maintenance of the water reservoir.  The School Board is trying  to opt out of its obligation to  Area A and the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Society.  One interesting note, the  BCTV crew came up to the  harbour to film and talk to  people concerned in the pool  dispute. The film and interview were never aired. Bob  Ireland, the Channel 8 interviewer, phoned to make an  appointment with Mr. John  Denley, Superintendent of  School District #46. He refused to speak to him, but  referred him to Secretary  Mr. Mills, At his visit to Mr.  Mills the same day, Mr. Mills  informed Mr. Ireland that an  agreement between both  boards would be signed and  problems would be over.  Ireland then cancelled the  show.   I   wonder   how   the  Regional board feels about  Mr. Mills speaking on behalf  of the Directors in this matter?  Thursday night Regional Meeting.  Finally, after the Aquatic  Society turned over the key to  the Regional Board Thursday  night, the Regional Board  unanimously supported Mr.  Lee's motion to send a letter of  authority from the Regional  Board to the P.H.A.S. to  operate the pool on the  Regional Board's behalf. Our  Director, Mr. Harrison, who  by the way has a hard time in  the middle of this thing, as  he is an employee of the  School Board, asked Mr. Lee  to act on Area A's behalf in  future negotiations with the  School Board. So Mr. Lee and  Mrs. Vader will represent  our area officially, in meetings  concerning Pender Harbour  Aquatic Centre.  Mr. Lee, who has become a  "Godfather" to the naive  and politically innocent Pender Harbour Aquatic Society,  will attempt to settle the  addendum #3 with the School  Board. In the meantime,  the P.H.A.S., who no longer  believes in verbal communications, requires a written  letter of good faith and  authority before the pool  reopens. The Society wishes  to make one thing clear: they  did not close the pool, only  withdrew its services, until  it has legal authority to  operate the pool.  Kfjinon.

Ian Vaughan then took the  floor to answer questions  regarding progress on our  satellite TV program. It was  decided that raising an 85 to  90 foot pole on Billy's Mountain would be the most arduous  task involved. The idea of  hiring a helicopter seemed  quite popular. The Community Club voted to endorse and assist the foundation of a Satellite Dish  Society and guaranteed some  money for expenses for  pursuing the project.  The last business of the  evening dealt with the donation the Komuri family has  given the club. It was voted  that this money plus $200 of  club funds be spent on hypothermia life-saving equipment.  We were forced into a substitute situation with Movie  Night in Egmont. "Time After  Time" was replaced with  "Honeysuckle Rose" starring  the Golden Throat himself,  Willie Nelson, accompanied  by lots of beautiful girls. The  soundtrack was filled with  some of the best country  music I've ever heard.  by Jon Van Aradell  The Egmont Community  Club's Annual General Meeting was far and away the most  successful event in town  Thursday evening, February  12. The following cast of  characters was elected to star  in next year's executive:  Secretary-Treasurer Betty Sil-  vey; Directors: Billy Griffith,  Jack Williams, Don Marshall,  Geoff Craig, Ron Fearn, Lew  Larson   and   Yours   Truly.  The following votes of  special thanks were awarded  during the evening and loudly  applauded: Betty Silvey, for  acting as Social Convenor, for  the last two years in a cheerful  and efficient manner; Vera  Grafton, for volunteering for  the same demanding job this  coming year; Jackie Laloge  and Rose Mueller, for standing as honest auditors; Edna  Howitt, Ann Cook, and all  their little helpers for the  Egmont Thrift Store (mini-  style this year); Ian Vaughan  for  his  efforts  in  pursuing  the satellite TV re-broadcasting station for Egmont.  These are the people who  keep a community club going  which provides a lot of entertainment over a year's time.  Special thanks should also be  given to the people who  founded the club, moved the  building from Britton River to  Egmont and kept the club  going for all these years.  Special business was highlighted by a visit by our own  MLA Don Lockstead. This was  Don's third visit to our town  this winter and we feel it's  great to have such personal  representation. He answered  questions regarding the recent  CPR/Provincial government  "rip-off" land swap, lease lots  and other issues dealing with  the Crown land that surrounds  us. Lockstead considers the  situation grim, given the  present government. Doug  Silvey represented a group of  people interested in getting a  road for residents on the other  side of the bay.

A team of experts from  Woodlands School in New  Westminster but going out  into the Lower Mainland communities to give help to those  working with handicapped and  exceptional children spent last  week on the Sunshine Coast  holding workshops attended  by thirteen teachers and  teacher's aides.  The Woodlands Inservice  Resource Team comprising  Sherri Bender, psychologist,  Karl Perrin Spence, speech  pathologist and Dean Daugh-  erty, teacher, reported enthusiastically to the School  Board of their reception and  the work they had been able to  accomplish here.  Using a variety of methods  including video-tapes of work  with the children which are  later used to evaluate the  approach, the workshops represent five days of intensive  training and exchange of  ideas.  The team will return once a  month for a period of six  months to keep in touch and  to assist with problems, if  any, and the further development as the children progress.  Also reporting to the School  Board were Cathy Nomura  and Norman Mills, the teachers involved with the new  Computer Science programme  for Grade 11 students. Three  students, Jeff Birkin, Gordon  Mulcaster and Tony Teo  demonstrated the newly ac  quired Apple computers and  the Pet previously in use at  Elphinstone. Obviously they  are enjoying the programme  and were happy to translate  computer jargon for the  trustees and show their  facility with the machines.

The School has a new  venture, a newspaper which is  the joint baby of parents and  students. Presently, two parents, Pam Goldman and Anne  Knowles, are involved and  gave an interesting account of  their work and how it has  grown in a few months to be  more than they can handle.

General membership meeting, Tuesday the  17th at 8 pm. oil  lla\   Hi  Auxiliary makes fall plans  by Rath Forrester 885-2418  Bazaar Plus:  At the Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary's February  meeting plans were laid out  for the fall bazaar. A bit early  to be talking about something  which will not happen until  October 10th, but this amount  of time is necessary in order  that the members can get busy  making all the gifts to be sold  at that time. There was a very  good turnout at the meeting  and it is always good to see  some new members ��� this time  two new ladies were made  most welcome - Eunice Keeler  and Carol Klozij. While the  membership is pretty good for  such a small area it is necessary to have new members,  so if anyone is new to the  area and would care to join  this very active group just  come along to the Welcome  Beach Hall on the first Monday of each month and the  red carpet will be laid out for  you.  President Mary Murray  reminded members of the  annual get-together of all  auxiliaries on the morning of  February 25 at 11 a.m. at  St. Hilda's Church Hall.  This is a "bring your own  lunch" affair and tea and  coffee will be served.  A request was made to  anyone in the area who is in  possession of any pictures or  historical data on the auxiliary  to please loan such items to  the Auxiliary prior to the 25th.  There are plans for a booth for  crafts and interesting auxiliary  data. Mary Murray could be  contacted on this. It was  agreed that once again the  Auxiliary will present the  Tea Garden during the Timber  Days celebrations and Geri  Smith and Mary Murray are  attending the planning meetings of the Timber Days  Committees in order to set  this up. Lots of help will be  needed for this very busy  occasion.  Mary McDonald offered to  take any members, old or new,  on a complete tour of the  hospital, which is always a  good idea for any members  who are planning to be of  help with auxiliary work at the  hospital. At the present time  the various auxiliaries are  raffling a bearskin rug in an  attempt to raise funds for the  purchase of a bus for the use  of hospital patients.  The next meeting will be  held at the Welcome Beach  Hall on the Monday of March  2nd.  Recreation Group Disappointed:  The Annual General meeting of the Halfmoon Bay  Recreation commission which  was scheduled for February  9th turned out to be a great  disappointment to the hard  working few who turned up  for it. There were not enough  people present to hold the  meeting and it had to be postponed until the Monday of  March 9th. This does seem  strange in an area where there  are more and more young  families moving in, because  the whole purpose of this  group is to provide recreation  for the youth of the area. But  the few who work so hard  cannot do it alone - they need  the support and help of all  parents in the area. One of the  problems could well be that  there are so many groups in  the area and people do get  confused as to which one is  which. Off the top of my head  I can name four such organizations in the area - we  have the Welcome Beach  Community Association who  runs all the social functions  at the hall - at least they run  most of them. Then we have  the Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Commission which is aimed at  the children of the area and  the Area "B" Ratepayer's  Association who keeps an eye  on the politics of the area, plus  the Halfmoon Bay Hospital  Auxiliary. Must admit that it  can get confusing.  Kohrrt* (  BOYS  HAS  AT  MORBANS  * ��� cord I Denim  JEANS  :     ���SHIRTS  NOW IN STOCK  !

Generally speaking, this  correspondent is of a fairly  mild disposition, but last week  while driving along Redroofs  Road I completely lost my  cool - in more ways than one.  Suddenly without any warning  whatsoever there was a big  ditch about two feet wide  and about eight inches deep  right across the road where  presumably a new water line  was being installed. My car  bashed right through it  causing the lid of the water  overflow thing from the  radiator to blow off, the result  being that the water boiled  over and I was stuck.  The maddening thing was  that there were no work crews  around on whom I could vent  my wrath. Surely it is the law  that some kind of warning be  placed that there is a driving  hazard like that in order  that one can slow down and be  prepared for it. Makes you  wonder why it should be  necessary to dig up the  hardtop right across the  highway when a few years  ago the people were informed  that ihe department in question were in possession of  machinery which could cut  beneath the hardtop when  installing water lines. Whatever happened to that equipment?  Hani Times night.  Don't forget to get your  order in for tickets for the  "Hard Times" dinner and  dance at Welcome Beach Hall  on February 28th.

Unfortunately, the school system  suffers from a cultural lag that  no government is willing to  recognize, let alone attempt to  remedy. Dr. Charles H.  Boehm puts it well. "We  are," he states, "prisoners of  a horse and buggy system. In  industry we use every possible  innovation to improve our  efficiency. In education, we  suspect all but the old ways."  One aspect of education  which seems entrenched and  which is seldom discussed is  the school calendar. The long  summer vacation, extending  for more than two months,  comes down to us from the  early pioneer days, when  children were needed by their  parents to help with the crops.  When the crops were ripe and  the harvest home, school  would once again open its  doors and the drone of lessons  would resume, to be interrupted only by the religious  holidays of Christmas and  Easter and the patriotic  Queen's Birthday on the  24th of May.  Carried down into 1981,  with the addition of some  statutory holidays, school operates for some 190 days out  of 365. This is economically,  socially and educationally  ridiculous. No politician ever  mentions it and pressure  would have to come from a  thinking   public   before   any  action may be expected.  Any business man would  shake his head in disbelief  if a billion dollar plant was  operated at 52% utilization,  yet that is the use we make of  our schools.  The summer months are  impossible to rationalize.  Great libraries strategically  placed all over the province,  loaded with millions of children's stories and reference  books stand under lock and  key at a time when children  should be reading for pleasure. Massive gymnasia, bulging with expensive sport  equipment, gather dust for  one quarter of a year, with  only spiders swinging from  the ropes until they, too, are  banished by the janitor's  mop.  In the shops, millions of  dollars of lathes, drill presses,  radial arm saws, power drills,  boxes and racks of hand tools  sit unused. Home Economics  labs likewise languish: stoves,  refrigerators, sewing machines, all idle. Science labs  where long term experiments  might be conducted, the  business machine rooms, seminar rooms and art rooms,  all shut down. The economic  waste is staggering.  There is a social impact,  also to be considered. Working parents are faced with  acute problems of trying to  arrange for the care of their  little ones. Workers vie with  each other to get vacation time  In the season of  grief...we care.  There is a time.for all things, but grief like  joy must be shared. Let us provide the  consolation and assistance you need when  such a time of trial must be faced. We handle  everything, we pay attention to every detail.  886-9551  D. A.

Costs are highest when  the family is free to travel.  The business community is  swamped by young people  seeking work. July and August are not always prime  months for weather in British  Columbia. Often May and  September are warmer and  more conducive to outdoor  activities.  Many children regress educationally during the long  absence from school. Those  who have been failed and who  will have to repeat a grade  worry a lot. For poor children  whose parents cannot take  them on trips, the long  holiday seems endless and  depressing. The start of  summer vacation is not always  the joyful affair newspaper  photographers would have us  believe when they arrange  with some co-operative principal to have a class charge out  the main doors throwing books  and papers in the air.  A year round school year  has been proposed and put  into operation in many parts of  the United States. Bauman  describes one year round  school system as follows:  "The calendar year is divided  into quarters. During each  quarter, under a flexible,  rotational quarterly timetable,  some children would be  attending school, some would  be accelerating, others taking  remedial work, others holding  temporary jobs, some taking  vacation." There are many  variations on this theme.  Staff flexibility would be  achieved. For extra salary,  young teachers might elect to  teach a full year. Some of the  affluent might take two or  more quarters off to write, to  travel, to upgrade, to rest,  to tutor privately. The sabbatical year could be achieved.  The district staff would be  augmented by young teachers, teachers on exchange,  and so on. There would be a  reduction of stress, and the  utmost mobility would be  achieved.  Staffing would cost more,  but building programs would  be drastically reduced. Equipment would be utilized 100%.  Winter sports enthusiasts  would take their vacations  when the snow and ice were  available.  Best of all, semester by  semester, each child would  progress at his or her own  rate. Progress would no  longer be recorded by grades  but in units of work to be  mastered sequentially by each  pupil. The school and its  facilities would be always  open, and would become the  centre of the community, a  hive of industry. Many educators believe that this will be  the pattern of the future.  Under present legislation and  under governments resistant  to change, it will not happen.  Crown corporation, anyone?

For Pender pool costs  School board not responsible  $9,778,078, 198I budget which  was on the table for discussion  and approval. The amendment  read: "That Ihe Budget for the  coming year be increased by  $2,500 which sum be paid to the  Pender Harbour Aquatic Society in recognition of their part  in effecting outstanding savings  inthe heating of the Pender  Harbour Senior Secondary  gymnasium and for their costs  in maintaining the pool full of  water as a reservoir for fire  protection of Pender Harbour  Senior Secondary School during the summer months when  the pool was not in operation."  The amendment was defeated.  by Maryanne West  It was established at a special  meeting with the Regional  Board on Monday that, in all  the confusion of who promised  what to whom for swimmingat  Pender Harbour, the School  Board is unequivocally right.  They only promised $5,000 for  the year 1980. Having made  their point and being in a  position to deal from strength,  it would have been nice to  report that Trustees were  willing to recognize the success  and dedication of the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Society with  a generous offer to see them  over a rough spot but, although  another opportunity arose at  Thursday's meeting, it was  turned down.  The original agreement signed in May 1979 states quite  under section 2, Operating  Costs, that "The (Regional)  District shall fund the operation for fees paid by users; by a  levy raised within the specified  area of said By-law No. 181 and  by contribution from the  School Board as follows:  "The Board shall rent the pool  at a cost per hour equal to the  estimated operating cost per  hour of the pool. The programme to be offered to the students  shall be determined annually  by the Board and recited in its  annual budget. For 1980 that  programme is estimated to  cost, and shall not exceed, the  sum of $5,000".  If you ask why the Aquatic  Society did not have a copy of  this agreement - it's because the  agreement had to be approved  by the Department of Education, Victoria, and has been  travelling back and forth since  1979, the fifth draft finally  receiving approval last week.  At Monday night's joint  meeting Director Harrison  pleaded with all concerned not  to waste time laying blame.  Obviously there had been a  misunderstanding, but the  important matter surely was to  get the pool in use again, a plea  which fell on deaf ears, even  though Secretary-Treasurer  Mills acknowledged that savings have accrued to the  Board as a result of the heated  pool in the basement contributing to the heating of the  gymnasium above and that the  Aquatic Society had maintained the pool during the  summer months when the  school was closed. After two  hours of discussion the Aquatic  Society was informed thafthey  must go through proper channels reporting to the Relgional  Board which body may bring  the matter to the School Board.

'���/���    '������  Coast News, February 17,1981  On democracy and elitism  Maryanne's  view-  Sechelt Garden Club  by Jack MacLeod  by Maryanne West  I read somewhere that  Pat Carney, MP for a Vancouver Riding, appeared before the CRTC last month to  protest the CBC's proposed  second TV network on the  grounds that it isn't democratic for the taxpayers to  support a channel which will  not carry mass audience  programming. It will be, she  said, elitist programming for a  small audience.  Have we really allowed the  criteria of the market place,  that nothing is of value unless  it can sell a million, to take  over our heads completely?  Do we think that only what is  "in" to-day is worth supporting?  Surely Ms Carney has got it  wrong. We have a tax-supported broadcasting system  just so it can provide us with  alternatives to the mass  audience programming. For  many years Canadians have  been howling for the blood of  the CBC because it fills too  much broadcast time with  American programming, all  of which is available on other  stations and too little programming, which is uniquely  and differently Canadian.  It's not the attack on  CBC-TV2 which concerns me,  (I think a good point can be  made that CBC has already  one channel which it could use  for full time Canadian programming before it applies for  a second; a channel which will  only be available on cable and  thus denied to many who still  cannot get their tax supported  programming off air,) but that  since the anti-intellectual revolt in the sixties "elitist"  has come to be a bad word and  somehow gets mixed up with  democracy.  I'm sure Ms. Carney isn't  as anti-elitist as she sounds. If  she is unfortunate enough to  get sick and need a surgeon,  I doubt she'll accept less than  the top surgeon she can find  and rightly so. Every time she  flies to Ottawa I'm sure she  hopes the Air Canada crew  are the company's elite and  that the plane is kept in top  condition by the elite of the  maintenance crew etc. etc.  We should be careful not to  confuse elitism with striving to  attain excellence in all we do.  That way lies the reduction of  Canadian aspirations to the  lowest common denominator.  If this is democracy, then it is  indeed effete and  Canada,  regardless of constitutions, its  Parliamentary traditions et al,  will not survive. We'll be  taken over by those whose  system, whatever they call it,  puts a high value on talent and  achievement. We can sadly  already see this happening  when we have to import  technicians and specialists  from other countries, an elite  to run our institutions and  resource management, because we do not have Canadians qualified for such jobs.  If minority interests are  disallowed on the grounds that  they're elitist, we're not only  depriving ourselves of the enrichment and diversity which  could make the quality of our  lives the envy of the whole  world, but we're leaving  ourselves open to the tyranny  of mass-produced culture and  with it massed-produced  thought. That in its turn can  only leave us open to dictatorship in some form.  The philosophy of democracy, while espousing the  rule of the majority, surely  implies that the government  chosen by the majority has  the responsibility to protect  the rights of minorities - otherwise what difference is there  from a dictatorship?  A democracy provides, or is  supposed to provide, equal  opportunity for all its citizens  to succeed. In fact, this is  much more difficult to achieve  than we think, and needs the  constant concern of every  community to make sure that  those who strive for excellence, whether it's at the  Olympics, as a surgeon, diver,  violinist, or whatever, receives  the encouragement and support they need.  The old system of support  for the arts and sciences by  the rich and those with  inherited wealth and power  has changed, so if traditional  art forms and scientific research are to flourish, they  have to be supported in large  part by a willing society,  which believes that diversity  and knowledge is important.  The sort of lives we want for  ourselves and our children are  those with many opportunities, not just those prescribed  by the current fad of the consumer based media.  We mistakenly think of  society as a large homogenous  mass with some select and  peripheral satellites of minority interests. In fact, few of  us are so limited that we  do *not circulate freely, en  joying many interests which  appeal to a majority, but  sampling a wide variety of  minority interests too.  Ms. Carney sounds as  though she thinks only an  academic elite would be  watching CBC-2. I think she's  reflecting an age that is long  gone. While minority programming may well include  technical discussions or coverage of academic symposia, it  will also cover business  concerns, amateur sport, ethnic interest, Native People's  programmes and a wide  variety of arts and sciences,  drama, film and children's  programmes. While audiences  for individual shows may not  be large by BBM standards,  one must always remember  that for such programming the  whole audience may change  within an hour from tiddly-  wink enthusiasts to physicists  or opera buffs and cannot be  evaluated by the criteria of the  marketplace.  If we, in the name of  democracy, allow our lives to  be restricted to marketable  standards of what is acceptable for tax-payer's support,  we shall be the poorer for it  and democracy will not survive.  Instead of bothering about  old elites, we should be  watching the new power-  brokers. Make no mistake  about it, those who acquire  power by whatever means  want to keep it in as few  hands as possible and this in  itself is a threat to democracy.  We need a strong and regionally viable CBC to counter  the centralized power of the  Cable owners.  The Sechelt Garden Club  opened its 1981 activities at  the meeting of February 4 in  St. Hilda's Church Hall. This  club meets on the first Wednesday of each month except  July and August when garden  tours and picnics are held.  Using the name Sechelt is  rather a misnomer as the vast  majority of the 90 members  live away from the Village of  Sechelt. The current president  Tarn Johnson, lives near  Gibsons and members come  from all points on this Sunshine Coast.  The prime aim of the club is  to promote interest in all  aspects of gardening. This is  done through the monthly  meetings of the club where  many topics re: plant cultivation are discussed. Quite  often we bring in an expert  who presents material related  to his particular field of  expertise. Two flower shows  are held each year, a spring  show (April 25, .1981 and a  summer show (September  12, 1981). At these shows the  public is invited to view an  array of beautiful blooms and  plants. Tea and refreshments  are provided and a sale of  plants is offered where good  quality bargains abound. The  September show is a com  petitive one and is judged by  persons who have qualified  themselves through the courses provided by the B.C.  Council of Garden Clubs.  Over the years the club has  given time, advice, and  material to some public areas.  The club also sponsors a  Junior Garden Club at the  Sechelt   Elementary   School.  The two Suncoast newspapers, the Coast News and  The Press, make a good contribution to gardening by  having a garden column in  most issues. These columns  are timely, very helpful and  often are entered in my  collection of garden ideas.  Good Gardening.

Alice  McSweeney on Beach Avenue  at Flume has a beautiful  Hybrid tall red Rose which has  bloomed steadily and well  straight through the winter.  I took my first trip to Casey's  Country Garden this week to  discover the most gorgeous  plump, bright pink primroses  all ready for a few days on your  coffee table and thence to  continue blooming in your  flower beds as the coast warms  into real Spring. Primroses are  perennial and will be with your  forever.  While exploring the area  around the three corners at  Roberts Creek, I discovered a  lovely little lane. Living there in  their impeccably kept home  surrounded by lovely gardens  and twenty four chickens, are  the Ponds. Versatile Dorothy  and Les arrived on the Coast  last year complete with two  partially completed boats  (ships?) that Les has under  construction.  One is a thirty-foot Newfoundland Dory that he is  building from scratch and the  other is an old fashioned Fraser  River fishboat - a 28-foot  counter stern, that he bought as  a wreck and is carefully  restoring. Both ships look  beautiful if only slightly out of  place on the beautifully kept  lawns by the large workshop.  The Ponds are an interesting  and interested couple for us to  have acquired here on the  coast. I am sad to hear that they  are considering taking their  lovely ships elsewhere to carry  on their activities. We need all  the colour we can get.  As for Gardening - let's get  going on cutting those edges,  grubbing out all the weeds and  popping sweet peas deep into  the ground at the base of  stumps and around gates for  Summer climbing fragrance,  colour and cutting.

Day  after day children descend on my kitchen like the proverbial hordes  and I stand like Mother Hubbard contemplating the bare shelves.  When I was their age I had no such problem or so it seems. I attended  a British school which offered that now almost vanished institution -  the school dinner. Swallowing a school dinner successfully  counteracted any pangs of hunger. I remember well my favourite  teacher saying: "For what we hope to receive...." the remainder was  drowned by clatterings and crashes of protest from the kitchens!  I did however decide in my own interest that I'd try a couple of  desserts. I always had a weak spot for a mysterious yellow creation  known as "school custard", but there was no way that could be  duplicated and even after all these years I couldn't face "frog spawn".  Everybody in Wales has one pudding for Sunday dinner. By the  time I left home I felt like the little girl in A.A. Milne's poem ���  "What is the matter with Mary Jane?  She's perfectly well and she hasn't a pain  And it's lovely rice pudding for dinner again!  What is the matter with Mary Jane?"

I  BY BiH Edney    SHOP   TALK   4gV  IN THE PUBLIC SERVICE  Along with Diane Strom, I had the privilege of attending a  Union of B.C. Municipalities Seminar for newly elecated  aldermen. In reviewing my��ote�� I recalled some informatifltr���*-���-��� *  that might be of general interest.  The opening speaker, a man of many years of experience ���:��  and "common sense" approach, was UBCM Executive  director, Mr. C.S.J. McKelvey. He spoke of the ever increasing  turnover of elected aldermen in local government. The rate is  roughly 1 in 5. The more than 200 new faces attending the  seminar, he felt, was an indication of the frustration  experienced by many of the elected officials and/or a desire for  change on the part of the electorate. Nonetheless it could also  be a most rewarding experinece if the newly elected alderman  did not undertake to change the world overnight. Slowly  change will come about where it is needed but never radically.  We learned more about the organizational structure of  government, from the most senior to provincial to municipal,  and as I had already begun to realize, how little real power we  have at the local level, except that which is specifically  delegataed by the BNA Act to the provinces and from the  provinces to us.  One speaker told us, however, that B.C. has the best record  of any for maintaining local autonomy. We have a rather  unique situation in B.C. where 99.75% of the total land area is  not municipally organized territory, and for this reason we  have the Regional District system and its local sub-districts  established in 1965.  In the session on Planning it was stressed that regional  district and municipal co-ordination was extremely important,  and is the reason, of course, why we have direct representation  on the Regional District Boards. Planning intelligently for the  future is not easy, they said, against the multitude of forces  that push and pull in an effort to force their particular views  into action or non-action.  " There Is a desire for an Increasing number of people in the.,  smaller municipalities, populated frequently by peopte'who������'  left the larger centres for peace and quiet, to keep their new  found home in a "sleepy hollow" state, it is important, while  attempting to preserve the peace and quiet, to recognize that  outside pressures to join us in "sleepy hollow" will force  change upon us, and if we don't plan for the ultimate, we can  have chaotic and costly development.  In many towns and cities, the old original beginnings (the  down-town core areas) are being rejuvinated. In Prince  George for example, the city has aggressively used public  funds to buy up and bulldoze down a large acreage of old,  down-town buildings. They are now, we were told, taking  advantage of the down-town revitalization benefits as set up by  the Provincial Government. They will invite several major  department stores and national companies to rebuild the old  centre on land leased to them by the city.  This will in turn provide the community with new, convenient  shopping, business and apartment dwelling facilities, while at  the same time providing new employment and a new tax base.  Desperate situations require bold and courageous  measures. I can tell you from my brief experience on council  that we cannot begin to do what we need to do for nicer streets,  sidewalks, Harbour esplanade, and many many more things  without the necessary tax base and general revenue to do it  with. We were told to seek out the pertinent information, have  confidence in the fact that as the elected body we are the  decision-makers, and no matter how hard we may try, we will  only please very few people for very little of the time.

Bill Fraser of Sechelt  managed to score his second  hole-in-one on the Sunshine  Coast Golf Course Club. Bill  shot his first hole-in-one on  the 171 yard par 3 hole and  has now managed to conquer  the short 106 yard par 8 hole.  It would appear that the tricky  #8 hole is being overcome  early this year in spite of it  being guarded on both sides  with huge sandtraps and a  nasty lake guarding the front  approach. The Golf Club is  pleased to have these hole-in-  one incidents reported. Each  one sends an under-privileged  youngster to camp, under the  campaign sponsored by the  Molson Breweries, public  relations program.  Pleased be advised that the  1981 invoices for dues has  been mailed to all members  this last week. Your valid  membership card can be  secured at the Golf Club on  payment of dues.  The new match committee  is planning an interesting  18-holc tournament  this  co  ming season. It is to be the  men against the senior men 55  years and older. Loser pays for  the dinner.

While last year's league-  winning Cozy Court Bruins  hold a slim lead over the  Mitten Flames, first place is  still not assured and it could  conceivably go down to the  final league game to decide  the league champion.  In the past, however, the  league winner has never won  the play-off championship, as  each year the league champion has been upset in either  the semi-finals or final series.  Last season's Bruins found  themselves coasting to 25  consecutive games without a  loss,- before being upset by  perennial play-off champs,  Roberts Creek.

Is It because we live on the  Sunshine Coast that we have become conditioned to believe a temporary  patch-up job after a breakdown is the only way to operate?  ��� Fact Is - Most breakdowns are caused by those worn  bushings, shafts, sprockets, keys, etc. and the resulting  accumulated lash in equipment.  ��� Fact Is - Major parts replacement is usually not necessary  if the minor work is done early.  ��� Fact Is - Vancouver parts suppliers love us on the  Sunshine Coast because all of our repair work is new  parts replacement.  ��� Fact Is - It will cost you a whole lot less if you bring in your  worn hydraulic cylinders, couplings, sprockets, shafts,  bushings, sheaves, pins, conveyor parts, etc. NOW!  ��� Fact Is - We have a new well cooled machine shop and  welding facility across from South Coast Ford in Sechelt.

Unfortunately, the Village of Gibsons has  no such policy, and, the current  council members have displayed no interest in the preservation of agricultural land. This  point is my most important  quarrel with the amalgamation  proposal.  Secondly, the inclusion of  these parcels of land would  create an awkward municipal  border.

I believe that  the majority of residents in  District Lot 690 do not wish to  incorporate with the municipality of Gibsons at the present  time. I alio concur with the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  who forsee planning and servicing difficulties in this proposal.  In conclusion, I believe that  any amalgamation proposal  involving any, or all, of District  Lot 690 should be tabled until  the residents of Area "E" and  District Lot 690 have defined  the future development of .this  area through an official community plan. I believe the  Regional Board should oppose  this proposal until a community ' plan is completed, and  when the village of Gibsons has  defined its position on the  preservation of agricultural  land. Until the village council  has assured the residents of  surrounding rural areas of their  policies in regards to the  preservation of rural and  agricultural land this decision  should be postponed. If the  proposed   amalgamation  oc  curs, it would mean the automatic and unavoidable loss of  approximately 40 acres of  prime agricultural land - assets  in a rural community like ours,  which we enjoy and admire,  would be lost due to poor  community planning and uncontrolled growth and development.  1 support and encourage the  Sunshine Coast Regional District in its opposition to this  amalgamation proposal in any  way you deem fit.  Sincerely yours,  John L. Johnston  Secretary-Treasurer mutters back  rates is estimated at $2,590,  Editor:  There are two small points  which need correcting in  articles which appeared in  your last issue. In the report  on the meeting at Madeira  Park to talk about the Pender  Harbour pool, Mrs. Vader is  reported as having said words  to the effect that, if they can  afford to spend $18,000 on  Elphinstone tennis courts,  why can't they afford to spend  $5,000 on the swimming pool  in Pender. Either the report  was wrong or Mrs. Vader was  wrong; the tennis courts in  question are budgeted for no  less a place than Pender  Harbour Secondary School.  Elphinstone already has its  tennis courts. I hasten to add  that this does not have any  bearing on the swimming pool  question, no matter where the  tennis courts are to be put,  they are distinctly separate  questions and distinctly separate budget sections with  different criteria leading to the  particular decision. In the  interests of accuracy, however, would everyone please  note that the tennis courts in  this year's budget section  have always been shown as  being at Pender Harbour  The second point relates to  Maryanne's mutterings, She  made a very good case, just  one little flaw, the whole case  is built upon the School Board  only' providing swimming in  Grades 3, 5 and 8 to the  Pender Harbour area, and at  no time has the Board made  that particular decision. It  was pointed out to the Pender  Harbour people that this is the  standard School District's  swim programme but in fact  the only decision which the  Board has ever made relating  to the 1981 budget for swimming from Halfmoon Bay  north was to provide for a  programme which will permit  every student from Grades  K-12 from Halfmoon Bay to  Egmont to have had a swimming programme during the  1980/81 school year.

Pearson's letter to the  Press, February 3, 1981,  endorses my apprehension  regarding the noise factor at  the present airport in Wilson  Creek. When I read a few  weeks ago that money was to  be set aside for expansion of  the airport I was distressed  and dismayed. Obviously,  with a larger facility the noise  from extra air-traffic will  certainly create more residential stress. Now, if what  Mr. Pearson says is true  and they are going to Install  night-flying lights on the field,  the impact on the residents of  the Sunshine Coast and  particularly those in the direct  vicinity of Sechelt, will be  devastating to say the least.

Last  summer the bombardment of  flight noise worsened and the  craft now fly as low as it is safe  to clear the treetops and our  roof-tops are shaved so close  by these zooming maniacs  that all conversation has to  cease, even while talking on  the telephone indoors.

When 1  left Dunvegan that summer of  '31 and fled to Ottawa, I could  hardly be described as a  desperate criminal nor do I  imagine that my name was on  Ihe Ten Most Wanted list.  Certainly I had heaved a lawyer  into a creek but I did not regard  that act as criminal, on the  contrary, I felt I was performing a public service. He  was an insufferable prig and he  needed to be taken down a peg  or two, at least that was my line  of reasoning at the time. This  simple act hardly earned me a  place among the hierarchy of  crime so it was with regret 1 had  to admit to myself that I would  never be another Dillinger,  "Baby Face" Nelson or qualify  as a member of Al Capone's  mob of thugs. In fact as soon as  I reached the capital city I  promptly forgot the whole  incident and instead of dodging  around in the shadows, skulking in doorways or attempting  to disguise my appearance by  wearing a false moustache or  beard, I just acted in my usual  manner and paced the city  streets like any other decent,  law-abiding citizen. It was as  well that I did, as the very day  after my arrival, by a stroke of  very good luck, I found myself  a job.  After paying for a night's  lodging at Cyr's Hotel on  Murray Street and eating a  gargantuan breakfast at Bowie's Lunch, I took inventory  of my financial condition and  found that, out of the ten dollar  bill the MacRaes' had loaned  me, all I had left was around six  dollars which hardly justified a  trip over the bridge into Hull. I  could have got pleasantly  drunk on that amount, but  being painfully aware that the  place was crawling with "painted ladies of the night" and I  possibly needed their attentions even more than I needed  the liquid refreshments, I  wisely decided to stay away.  My top priority was finding  work and accumulating a  stake, then I could hie myself to  that sinful city and really tear it  apart!  Musing in this vein, I was  strolling along Spark's Street  around 11 am. when a voice  from the crowd called "Hi Don,  how are you?" and "What are  do doing in the big city?" I  recognized the voice and, sure  enough, it was Jane or Jennie  as we all called her, the second  daughter of Ferg. Halpenny,  the farmer for whom I had  previously worked out in  Manotick. She was still working for the Civil Service in  Ottawa and was out for a coffee  break. I had always thought her  rather shy and reserved but  now she was very friendly and  invited me to join her, in fact  she even offered to buy me a  coffee, so we entered an  adjacent cafe. We chatted away  about this and that, when she  suddenly recalled that her Dad  had just commenced the haying  and she was sure he would be  only too glad to have me once  again as his helper. In no time  at all a phone call to Manotick  was made and the answer was  "Sure, come on out". I caught  the next bus and that night,  after one of the magnificent  suppers that only Annabelle  and her mother could make, I  was back up in my old room, in  my old bed, just as if I had  never left.  Weatherwise, that summer  was perfect for not only the  haying but for the ripening of  grain. It was so hot and dry it  YOU'LL NEVER RUN OUT!

Consequently, it was a welcome relief when, on Sunday  afternoons in the company ol  two or three of the other hired  men around, all young fellows  like myself, went for a swim in  the Rideau Canal. We chose a  spot hidden away from the  houses as none of owned a  bathing suit and we had a great  time of it "skinny dipping",  splashing and horsing around  in the cool waters. On this  particular afternoon it so  happened that none of my  companions was much of a  swimmer so I, showing ofl  probably, accepted their dare  to swim across the Canal which  was not wide but very deep,  especially out in the centre. In  past years there had been a  heavy traffic of tugs and barges  but now it was mostly used by  pleasure craft.  I swam across without difficulty, rested on the opposite  bank for a few minutes, then  shouting to the others, "I am on  my way back", I dived in and  had made about ten or twelve  strokes when suddenly I felt  something grab my right foot.  It was an uncanny sensation,  no pain but definitely something or other had seized my  big toe and to my amazement  was holding on to it! I must  confess that I panicked and,  not realizing I was in about 30  feet of water, tried to stand up.  Under I went, then stuggled to  the surface but the damned  thing still had a hold of me.  Now I gathered myself together  and gave a big kick which  released the thing and, at the  same time, 1 felt a sharp searing  pain. A few more strokes and I  was back on the bank from  which I started and boy was I  ever bleeding! My right big toe  was almost severed with two  small blue puncture marks on  the upper part and the artery,  veins and cords of the lower  part all slashed away.  It is too long a story to write  in detail but by the time I  managed to convince the others  on the opposite bank that I was  badly hurt and they, in turn,  went down the canal to where  they could find a boat and row  across to me with my clothes, I  had lost a lot of blood. I used  my belt for a tourniquet which  helped some, while two of them  took off on the run to get Ferg.  Halpenny. He soon arrived in  his car and we made the  seventeen mile drive to the  Ottawa General Hospital E-  mergency Ward to get my toe  sewed back on again. It took  eleven stitches and the intern  on duty at the time bungled the  job so it has been crooked ever  since and still gives me a sharp  spasm if I step on the edge of a  board or am not careful when I  mount a ladder.  By this time, if you have  stayed with the story, will be  wondering what on earth  caused such a wound. To the  best of my knowledge there are  no sharks, barracudas or  piranhas in Canadian rivers,  lakes or other bodies of fresh  water but a month or two later  a Mr. Sadd, a retired commercial artist and an avid  angler, hooked and boated a 37  Ib. muskellunge, almost at the  identical spot where I was  attacked.

I was laid up for a week or  two while my foot healed.  During this time Lottie, the  youngest girl, was assigned as  my nurse and it afforded me the  opportunity of laying siege to  her virture all over again. Sad  to relate, once more 1 got  absolutely nowhere with her. It  was becoming increasingly  obvious that come fall, when 1  was paid off, I would have to  hit across that bridge to Hull.

Inglis  How may today's "church"  bridge the generation gap  between the rough and unstructured "ekklesia" (assembly) of  Jerusalem in the 1st century  A.I)., and the widely diversified and fantastically disparate  cmbrella structure which is  loosely labelled as "the church"  in the world today?  Probably the safest starting-  point would be to identify what  is meant by the word "church"  and who fits within this  understanding!  The first thing we will very  likely find is that the understanding of the word "church"  itself is so vastly different to the  professing Christians of the  world, that it will be meaningless and unprofitable to discuss  the church at all, unless it is  clearly defined.  This does not mean to  discredit any other definition of  church, or to take lightly those  who   belong   to   a  "church"  The meaning  of the church  which does not fill the meaning  of the word in this discussion.  Therefore, it is not intended  to say that a church formed a  few weeks ago by an 11-year-  old evangelist and his followers  is any less a church than a  church which traces its roots  back 2,000 years.  What it does say is that the  "church" engaged here is the  mainline traditional church, be  it Protestant or Catholic, which  has a full-established doctrine,  a polity (constitution or system), a governmental structure  with oversight, and traditions  which are rooted and founded  in scripture.  Within these parameters, it  may be seen that a "church"  which started by throwing out  all tradition and starting afresh  purely on the basis of one  person's, or one group's interpretation of scripture, would  scarcely fill the bill.  Now would a "church"  which is founded purely on the  basis of stressing one ecclesias-  /?

So, the problem becomes  one of discovery of the way in  which a church congregation in  the final decades of the 20th  century may honor traditions,  forms of worship and living  procedure within the worshipping community, which are  hundreds of years old!  If there were a simple  answer, this discussion would  be pompous and pointless - so  would the very real struggles of  the mainline traditional churches for the past half century!  But the answers may be a  whole lot simpler than is  generally understood.  And the answer may lay  within the confines of the  definition of the word "worship," which it states is Webster's Dictionary is rooted in  the word "worth," and as a verb-  transitive means:  1. To  adore or pay divine  honors as to a deity;  2. To reverence with supreme  respect and veneration.  Secondly, the answer may  lay within our understanding of  the Cod who we worship - is he  dead, or is he totally unap-  �� proachable, or is he alive and  dynamic today within our  worshipping community as he  was 2,000 years ago?  Thirdly, the answer may  require an understanding of  why we worship - is it purely a  sign of conventional respectability, or is it a way to appease  the wrath ofa vengeful deity, or  is it to offer a loving response to  a loving and merciful God our  'of pure, sheer joy?  If we feel that worship is to  adore or reverence a dead or  unapproachable God, it can be  seen the manner of worship  would be quite different than if  we believe, we are worshipping  a living and loving God who  knows and loves us personally,  and offers us rewards beyond  our wildest earthly dreams.  It can also be seen that the  worship of a living and loving  and personal God should be  joyful, contemporary, and  addressed to a God of today  with all the reverence of  yesterday, when the saints of  the church were forming the  church's worship patterns.  It seems to follow, then, that  the worship, in order to be at  once reverential and joyful,  traditional and contemporary,  should also take into account  very strongly the roles of the  worshipper and the one being  worshipped.  So, if we accept the belief  that God is alive, joyous,  dynamic in every race and  culture in the world, we should  link God and worship together  in such fashion that we honor  the manners, mores and culture  of the worshipping community.  We should draw on the  example of Jesus, who worshipped in the structured  worship of his race and cultural  background in the temple and  synagogue on sabbath days and  holy days, and he worshipped  in the hills and plains of his  country in a free, unstructured,  teaching and praising worship  at other times ��� as the time and  place ordained.  We should honor the fact  that the worshipper who finds  the well-ordered and structured  worship fills his needs, may be  offended and affronted by the  loose and free-wheeling, spontaneous type of worship in  which others find joy.  This is the basic problem  which has arisen in the mainline, traditional church since  1968, when the modern version  of the charismatic approach to  worship arose strongly in the  U.S. and has since swept  around the world, splitting  many congregations into two  distinct factions of worship -  structured and traditional on  one side, and free-wheeling and  experimental on the other.  As we said at the outset,  there is ho easy bridge between  the rough and unstructured  early church, and the church of  today, unless we narrow down  our definitions and regard  today's structured church in  tighter focus, as a reverential  body of believers, honoring a  God of life and love, and  heeding his commandment to  love one another.  Then we may find that  worship attains its true meaning when it does establish a  bridge!  But the bridge need not link  anything other than (he worshipper and the one he or she  worships!

Bill Hunscha  883-2837  ��� 16  Coast News, February 17, 1981  At Douglas College  B.C. naturalists meet  by Vince Bracewell  j The Federation of British  Columbia Naturalists is a  federation of clubs and organizations who are dedicated to  the understanding, conservation and wise use of British  Columbia's flora and fauna.  Each club is autonomous  and is involved with local  interests and deals with local  problems. Individual clubs can,  when required, call on the  Federation for advice and  assistance. Contact is maintained by representation to  Iperiodic meetings and the  .publication of a quarterly news  letter known as the B.C.  Naturalist.  The Sechelt Marsh Protec-  'tion Society is the federated  club in this area and keeps in  touch with its membership  through a monthly newsletter  known as the Marsh Wrender-  ings.  On the 17th of January, I  attended a lower mainland  regional conservation and  education meeting as representative of the Sechelt Marsh  Society. The meeting was held  at the Langley Campus of  Douglas College.  The meeting started at 9:30  a.m. and was chaired by  Regional Vice-President Jude  Gross who opened the meeting  and introduced President Dr.  V.C. Brink.  Dr. Brink addressed the  meeting on the re-organization  of the charter and items of  housekeeping including a new  I RESTAURANTS I  cost saving format for the 4000-  copy publication of the newsletter. He said raising funds was  a problem and that B.C. Fish  and Wildlife Branch had been  very helpful but pointed out  that local project funds must be  raised by each club. i.e. The  Backyard Wildlife Project  started by Bill Merilees of  Nanaimo.  President Brink told the  representatives that their clubs  must get involved in conservation issues and that more  people need to be concerned  with the problems facing  wildlife habitats etc. and that  supplementary feeding of wild  species is not desirable in the  long run. He summed up by  saying that the clubs should be  involved in providing wardens  for ecological reserves and  education for young people.  Chairperson Judy Gross  welcomed Tom Burgess, Regional Biologist, for the B.C.  Fish and Wildlife Branch and  all the club representatives who  had turned out for the meeting.  Education Chairman, Al  Gross spoke briefly about the  problems encountered in getting to attend educational  meetings of a non-controversial nature in order to educate  them on the need for conservation.  Reports from the club representatives were as follows:  Alouette Field Naturalists.  Duanne Vandcrburg reported  that the sandhill cranes only  produced one egg from three  nests and then the chick died.  Seventeen American cranes  from Idaho have been raised  and are being held on a ranch  and will be released this year.  Sechelt Marsh Society - Vince Bracewell reported on  problems with land develop  ment in the salt marsh area and  vandalism.  White Rock and Surrey  Naturalists'. Mary Louise  MacDonald presented a 9 page  report on the "Recommendations of the Fraser Valley  Wetlands Habitat Committee"  and "The National Wildlife  Refuges of the Willamette  Valley, Oregon - An example  for the Lower Fraser Valley?"  36 pages. Both these booklets  were published by Douglas  College.  Langley Field Naturalists',  Dan Rempell said they were  Nature Reserve Custodians  and also may be looking after  the Fraser River Islands. They  were having problems with  dogs in the Campbell Valley  Park.  Vancouver Natural History  Society - Keith Hobson, reported on conservation issues:-  Vancouver Airport Expansion lona Island, data on  bird populations.  Violations of Transport  Canada using pesticides.  All Candidate Meeting hosted on the subject of parks.  Endowment   Lands  UBC,  minimum park boundary.  Mitigation of Robert's Bank  hosted a meeting on the  problems of oil spills.  Fraser    River      Wetlands  Committee    Conservation  field trips.  Loss of raptor habitats.

First, the New Year pudding  recipe: I find some of the  Chinese desserts too heavy and  sweet, or flat, but this is a  matter of individual taste. The  intriguing thing about this  recipe is its simplicity; only  three ingredients, water, sugar,  rice flour.  Melt '/< Ib. or about I cup  brown (Chinese) sugar and  cool. Dissolve in hot water  and pour over I pkg (8 oz.)  rice flour and mix into a light  batter. Pour into deep pan, (the  sides of which are fenced with ti  or banana leaves). Steam for 4  hrs., adding hot water to  steaming pan when needed.  If the pudding turns out  good, it will be a good year. If it  does not, it means something to  worry about!  My wife makes a very tasty  Chinese sweet snack called  Won Ton Chips.  She makes her own won ton  dough, you can use I pkg won  ton wrappers.  Cut dough in about I  inch  squares.  Deep fry in hot fat 'til golden,  about I min. or less.  Drain on paper towel.  Sift powdered sugar over both  sides.  Keep under lock and'key! In  China the dessert course may  come between courses or at the  end. So let's have another fish  recipe.  DEEP FRIED PRAWNS  I lb. prawns  1 tsp. salt  V. cup flour  2 tsp. baking powder  I cup cornstarch  I egg  I tbsp. oil  '/�� cup water  4 cups oil (use oil from won ton  chips)  Method  Shell prawns, leaving tails on.  Drain and clean, sprinkle with  salt and mix well.  Mix  flour,  baking  powder,  cornstarch, egg, oil and  water to make a batter.  Heat 4 cups of oil in wok or  deep fryer.  Holding prawns by tails, dip in  batter then drop in hot oil.  Fry until golden, turning once.  Serve hot and use cocktail  sauce or sweet and sour  sauce for dipping.

But to me,  for the past 38 years, the real  harbinger has been the holding  of the annual, mid-January  Truck Loggers Convention.  Founded in I943 by a group  led by H.J.

Bert Welch owned Olympic  Logging Co. Ltd. at Big  Qualicum River and I was one  of his log truck drivers. Old Joe  Thomson was our bull of the  woods and Bert had sort of  ordered him to attend that first  convention.  He hated cities and as he  knew that I was familiar with  the big city he sort of ordered  me to attend with him. I had  shared a room with Joe at  Olympic's Home Lake Road  camp and he was such a Prince  of an old Scot that when Joe  said 'jump!', I jumped!  As I recall, it Was a two day  affair then and the sessions, to  us active, outdoor types were  .long and boring. Old Jocknew  shot their wad and were  looking for enough bread to  tide them over till their camps  opened and they could go back  to waging the woodwars they  did battle in.  Some pretty wild parties  erupted from these lavish  suites. Chain saws were just  beginning to cut their way into  the falling and bucking industry and I recall a party in one of  the dealers rooms when someone decided to enlarge the suite  to make room for dancing.  They cranked up one of the  heavy, roaring beasts and  proceeded to cut out a wall by  starting at a door opening  between the rooms. Sawdust  and plaster was just a flyin' as  they progressed with one of the  fastest expansion jobs in the  west. That is, until they hit a  water pipe.  ,���Wqll sir, a water pipe to a saw  what was going on but math r)f vftainls IrktTfcrrearrdy to a kid.  it was over my head.

Those first sessions turned  out to be a sounding board for  a good many people connected  with and doing business with  the forest industry such as  equipment dealers, the service  industries, forestry consultants, banks and finaiice companies.  By mid-January the big  companies were pretty well  established as far as Jog and  lumber markets were concerned for the coming year) budgets  had been brought down and  equipment purchases,and expansion plans made;? production goals had been established  for their own camps and their  contractors; so spring startup  for the logging camps were  based on the outcome of all  these factors. If favorable, then  the camps would open and we'd  go back to work. If not, we  could have another couple of  months of stagnating in town.  So you can see that an early  start meant that spring wasjust  around the corner and we'd all  be happy!  Each year the Convention  became better organized and  the hospitality suites more  lavish to attract the boys with  the big bucks to spend. Of  course, they also attracted the  boys with no bucks to spend;  loggers from skid row who had  ended the cutting and started a  young flood. The kerf in a half-  sawn pipe can start a spray that  can soak two rooms full of  people Ike a full blown cloud  burst. The party was over!  Another incident which  happened in the Hotel Vancouver ballroom was when some  donkey started up a D8 Cat'  which was on display and  decided to do a little bulldozing  across the hardwood floor.  Everyone was surpised it didn't  wind up in the basement!  Since that time there have  been Pinkerton guards patrolling every floor in hotels where  TLA Convention's are being  held. It has quietened things  down somewhat so most of the  excitement created these days is  when some conventioneer  shoves a 'lady of the night' out  into a hallway in the 'au  naturel' and locks the door. She  has to be rescued by some floor  guard and covered with a short  coat.  But things have not really  changed to much over the  years. In spite of the loot the  loggers take home on payday,  the gals and dream peddlers in  the big city can relieve them of  it as fast as the babes in the old  days. And the same boys who  have shot their wad and used  up the last of their U.I.C. draws  can be seen hitting up the old  boss for a light touch.  I still meet many of them in  the bars and in their camps and  I hear much of the same thing.  Their talk is still of wine and  women in the woods, and  logging in the honky-tonks.  Creative movement  workshop  Continuing Education has  invited Kate Scarr to give a  weekend workshop on Creative Movement in Roberts  Creek School on February 20,  Friday at 7:00-10:00 p.m.,  Saturday at 9:00-4:00 p.m.  and Sunday morning from  9:00 a.m. until noon. The fee  is $25.  Using such techniques as  yoga, massage, mime exercises, improvisational movement and aerobics, the workshop will provide a space to  explore one's own inner  rhythms and share them with  others in dance.  This workshop will help  define personal body needs  and give some ideas on how  to fulfill those needs. Musk  and rhythm instruments are  used throughout. Over the  first two days, participants  develop skills, awareness and  a group rapport. The last day  will involve the whole group in  telling a story through dance.  Loose-fitting clothing or leotards are required, plus a  foam pad or mat.'

Shinner's press release said; "These measures are aimed  specifically at reversing the irend of declining chinook stocks,  especially those of the Fraser River system. These stocks have  declined dramatically over the last 10 years from 230.000 in I970  to 110,000 in 1980."  Additional spot closures affecting both sports and commercial  fishermen first announced in October of last year will entail  closing off specific areas to protect threatened or weak stocks or  heavy concentrations of juvenile chinook. For sports fishermen  Directors cross swords  Area C, Director Lee's area, is the latter area to which the report  refers, though preliminary work with a citizen's committee is  scheduled to begin in early March with a first draft tentatively  scheduled lor May 6. (See schedule below.I  In spue oi assurances irom Director Almond, whose settlement  plan lor Area I) has been accepted by Victoria, that the report was  not intended to embarrass any director. Director lee voted alone  in opposition to acceptance ol the report as read.  The report stresses the urgency of the completion and  implementation of Settlement Plans as the Provincial  government's proposed new Planning Act comes into effect this  year, and emphasizes the need lor maximum public interest and  participation.  The report estimates Ihe time necessary for completion of a  Settlement Plan at six months to a year and notes that once in  place, a plan must be reviewed initially within three years and  thereafter every five years. The plans can be amended or changed,  as any other zoning by-law can be. with proper procedure and  public hearings.  "An acceptable Settlement Plan is the only vehicle which will  ensure orderly development in accordance with the public wish,"  the report states.  The following is an approximate timetable of Settlement Plans  prepared by Sunshine Coast Regional District Community  Planner Jim Johnstone:  Elphinstone: (Area E) First draft complete.

Active Pass, Porlier Pass, the Nanaimo vicinity. Point  Grey bell buoy area.  Acting Director General Shinners said that the restrictions had  been drawn up so that they would impact more or less equally on  sports and commercial fishermen.  In obvious anticipation of the storm of protest that restrictions  affecting sports fishermen would raise, Shinners observed in his  press release: "The sports fishery in B.C. waters is now of such  magnitude that it cannot continue almost totally unregulated  while restrictions are being imposed on those who depend on the  fishery resource for their livelihoods."

"He wasn't at all what I expected," Lee said, "I found him to be  an articulate and highly educated gentleman. It also appears that  he has a legitimate beef about his goddamn washing machine. 1  move we look out this bill and pay it."  Lee also made the point that it is accepted practice for water  authorities to notify residents in advance of any work that will  affect their water supply. Lee stated that when he first moved to  this area his water heater had been damaged because ofa similar  lack of notification.  PUC Chairman Jim Gurney attempted to convince the board  that the damage to Mr. Mountain's appliance had been caused,  not by the trenching operations, but by the partial collapse of an  old log and earth bridge thirty feet away. The collapse of the  bridge, Gurney stated, was in no way related to the trenching  operations.  Directors expressed some doubt that the collapse of the bridge  was purely coincidental and at no time did Gurney or any other  Director raise the question of the board's apparent lack of proper  authorization to trench Husdon Creek.  By the end of the discussion, Director Almond indicated he was  prepared to support Lee's motion and "Rocky" will get his  cheque.

MEMBER SUNSHINE COAST REAL ESTATE ASSOCIATION  "P.T." Dahle 885-5692 Deirdre 885-5971 Pat 885-5171  The B.C. Real Estate Act  Under our province's Real Estate Act. each real estate  linn must be supervised by an agent or nominee, and  must supply a bond in varying amounts, depending on the  number of licensees employed. The minimum bond for a  one-person operation is $10,000,00. For larger firms it is  proportionately higher. (In addition, most local Real  Estate Boards also carry bonds which protect the public  in the event the individual agency bonding proves  insufficient.)  For many years, our province has been recognized as  maintaining one of the highest standards in the world, in  terms of real estate licence laws, standards of education  and practice, and protection for the public.  Because of the importance of real estate to society, the  need to regulate real estate practices was recognized  many years ago. In Canada, B.C. led the way with the  passing of the country's first Real Estate licence law in  1922. In 1950. a significant amendment to the Act came  into force with the creation of the B.C. Real Estate Agents  Licensing Board, later re-named the Real Estate Council  of B.C.  The final responsibility for administration of the Real  Estate Act rests with the Superintendent of Insurance, in  the Ministry of Consumer and Corporate Affairs.
