Array ^8's/at/verii,.  Parii.        u��raty   The Sunshine  f��8.g     PI  T   Published on the Sunshine Coast 25- per copy on news stands     August 22,1988       Volume 42       Issue 34  The stars and crew of Beachcombers take over the Gibsons office  of the Coast News to film an episode featuring 'Sal' (the real-life  Largest crowds ever  wife of Robert Clothier or Relic) as the newspaper's editor.  ���Vern Elliott pholo  Sixth Festival a smash hit  by Peter Trower  & John Burnside  What goes around comes  around, and the Sixth Annual  Sunshine Coast Festival of the  Written Arts is no exception to  that rule. II eased into place  right on schedule, pulling in  more people lhan ever before  who came to attend a star-  studded gala of entertainment  and information for almost  every taste.  An indication of the growing  success of the Festival can be  found in the tent which hosts  the  major or  most   popular  events. It was big enough to  hold 600 people this year and  several   times   during   the  weekend was filled lo capacity.  Among  the  luminaries  of  Canadian letters lhat the crowds  came to see and  hear were  David Suzuki, W.P. Kinsella,  CBC   anchorman   Knowlton  Nash, and distinguished veteran  of Canadian poetry P.K. Page.  Suzuki was the second to last  scheduled   speaker   of   the  weekend when it might have  been that the audiences were  growing weary but he filled the  huge tent and when he finished,  his landmark address received a  spontaneous and wholehearted  standing ovation from the fortunate present.  David Suzuki could perhaps  be described as a Renaissance  Man of Science. He has probably done more to de-mystify  genetics and other complex subjects for the general public lhan  any other man alive. In person  he comes across as intensely  straight-forward, committed  and likable.  The noted environmentalist's  list of academic and media  achievements are imposing indeed, but he is attending this  Festival as a writer and his  credentials here, too, are impeccable. He has published hundreds of articles and nine  books, most recently his  autobiography Metamorphosis:  Stages in Life.  He reads from the autobio  graphy, beginning with the  trauma of being relocated to  Southern Ontario during the  dispersal of coastal Japanese  Canadians during the Second  World War.  Much of the autobiographic  material is amusing and deeply  interesting but it is when he  switches into a more serious  vein and begins to discuss the  ecological concerns that have  preoccupied him for years that  his gifts for powerful and affecting oratory become apparent.  As he details the outrages that  man has inflicted and still Inflicts on the environment, he  becomes more and more impassioned. By the time he approaches the climax of his talk  he is a secular evangelist, a  counsel for Ihe defence of the  planet itself. It is without a  doubt the climax and Ihe high  point of a most interesting  Festival.  Earlier in the weekend W.P.  Kinsella provided a very different type of experience. Famed for his baseball stories and  his (ales of the Hobbema  Reserve, Kinsella's bizarrely imaginative wit fascinates and  entertains.  He closes wilh a marvellous  McGillivray alarmed at  baseball fantasy from his new  collection which deals with a  legendary base-stealer who,  crippled and unable lo play  anymore, sets out to find his  successor. The slory is told by a  sports writer who follows the  crippled player on his odyssey  and ends on a haunling note  when the old player, having  found the youth he has been  seeking, becomes one with him  and they blend into a single person.  Kinsella is one of Ihe more  spectacularly successful writers  Please turn lo page 8  Foreshore privatization  When the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) Planning Committee met last week  they were presented with six applications from the Regional  Lands Manager and private  citizens wanting to purchase  foreshore leases. It is standard  procedure to refer all crown  land applications to the local  government body for their input  before approving an application.  But members of the planning  committee are unwilling to  recommend approval of these  kinds of application until they  have a meeting with the  Minister responsible for Crown  Lands.  One director, Brett  MacGillivray, expressed shock  at the whole concept and told  the meeting that he had been  away and was unaware of the  provincial government's decision to sell off foreshore leases  until last week.  "This is a political decision,"  he said, "that has horrendous  implications."  The committee agreed to  write to the Minister saying that  they could make no recommendations on these referrals until  they had discussed the full implications of the process with  him. They also decided to raise  the issue at the Union of British  Columbia Municipalities Convention in September.  In an interview with the  Coast News the next day, director MacGillivray elaborated  about his concerns.  "As Canadians we take it as,  some assumed, fundamental  right that the foreshore is for all  to use, and this right is being  eroded. I'm not sure that people  are even aware that this is happening."  He explained that no planning or zoning is in place for the  crown land and pointed to the  situation in Tuwanek as an example of the problems that arise  when recreational lots become  year-round homes. Residents  along Tillicum Bay Road are  not connected to the regional  water system, and may have  serious problems hooking up to  that system.  When the area was originally  developed, the lots were recreational, used for summer cottages, and the road through the  development was put on the  most convenient route, one  which deviates from the proper  road allowance and has no  space on the sides for running  water mains.  The problem was not serious  ten years ago, when the area  was sparsely populated, but is  now a real concern as more people want to make their permanent homes there.  With no zoning or planning  in place for the crown land  leases that are being sold,  MacGillivray envisions many  similar problems arising in the  future.  There is also some question in  the director's mind as to where  this process is heading. "This is  only the first stage of privatization of the foreshore," he said.  "Next it will be fish farms,  forestry leases and log dumps.  There's no zoning in place to  handle these things and it opens  the door to problems of all  kinds in the future."  MacGillivray will be drafting  a resolution for the SCRD to  present at the September convention which will call for a  moratorium on the sale of  crown land foreshore until a full  enquiry has been made.  New park named  Labontes get  recognition  by Bruce Grierson  Goosebird Park, on Bay  Road in lower Gibsons, has  been revamped and renamed in  honour of former Gibsons  mayor, Larry Labonte.  At a ceremony on Sunday,  attended by current Mayor  Diane Strom and most of Gibsons council, the new park was  formally christened Labonte  Park, in recognition of the years  of service Labonte and his wife  Agnes, have given to the community.  The original plan for the new  park was conceived in February  by 17-year-old Denise Weal of  Gibsons, whose efforts were  part of a local work experience  project and Gibsons works  superintendent Skip Reeves.  Weal, who will attend BCIT in  the fall to study computor-  assisted drafting, said she and  Reeves drew up the original  plans for the park in March and  construction began in early  May.  The channel was moved and  reconstructed, the topsoil was  hand-raked, the ground was  cleared and stones were laid in  place on the creek bank. Eventually when the creek has setd-  ed, it will be stocked with fish.  Both Reeves and Weal insisted thai the work could not  have been done without equipmenl loaned by Sechelt Assistant Works Superintendent, Art  Dew, and a raft of supporting  volunteers, including Reeves,  Elvina Morrison and Grant McBain from the Fisheries Department, who offered technical advice on the reconstruction of the  stream, and most of the Weal  clan. Denise says she can't  estimate the number of hours  she and her stepfather, mother,  sister, and two uncles put in.  The last piece of sod was laid  a week before the park dedication.  In a letter to Gibsons council,  Labonte called the park dedication "a great honour" and  thanked the town of Gibsons,  and all those involved in the  project for their efforts.  "This is an example of town  and community working  together, which we hope will  continue in future," said  Labonte.  Civil defence  annual test due  The civil defense department will be conducting its annual  siren test on August 31 at 1:00 pm. A signal will be sent from  civil defense headquarters in Victoria to the air raid siren on  School Road and back again, to make certain all circuits are  functioning properly.  The test does not involve actually sounding the siren, so a  successful test cannot be heard. But, says Gibsons mayor  Diane Strom, malfunctions do occur periodically.  "It has been known that sometimes, instead of being a  silent test, it is very audible."  "They asked us to let the community know well enough in  advance, so that if it does happen to go off, there's no  panic."  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Renaissance Man of Science David Suzuki enchants and educates  Festival of the Written Arts audience in Sechelt (see story this  page). ��� Vwn Elliott photo  -���!����*-*' ���������������'  ��� Coast News, August 22,1988  A tribute  well earned  No couple are more deserving of permanent community  recognition than are Larry and Agnes Labonte of Gibsons  and Gibsons Council deserves the highest commendation  for recognizing the fact by naming Labonte Park after the  worthy couple.  Agnes and Larry have served their community unceasingly and in a wide variety of roles for more than 30 years.  They have both done so in their different styles without the  preening need for recognition that so many activists come  equipped with. No thought of self coloured the community spirit of Agnes and Larry.  The long list of their activities cannot be enumerated in  this brief space. Agnes worked with and for the Girl  Guides, served as chairman of the school board and performed as well a limitless array of personal and public  kindnesses that all of Gibsons has benefitted from.  Her husband has twice been mayor of Gibsons and  several times an alderman and for years raised money for  the Gibsons Athletic Club.  In his letter of appreciation to Gibsons Council Ihe  former mayor expressed the wish that the community  working together would be something which would grow  and continue. There is no better author of such a wish.  Larry Labonte is that rarest of individuals, at home and  respected in the Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce as he was known and respected as a good union  man when he worked at the mill. He was entirely comfortable and effective in both roles because he realised that it  was all just people trying to do something together and he  liked to help and, more often than not, give leadership.  ll is a wise community which recognizes while ihey are  among us its gentle great ones.  5 YEARS AGO  Council received two more letters protesting the rip rap  retaining walls built by two residents on Franklin Beach to  protect their properties from erosion. Council voted to  send all letters received to Mr. Gilmore of the Ministry of  Lands, Parks and Housing who had recently ordered  demolition of the walls.  Almost half of the 12-acre playing field planned for Kin-  nlcklnnlck Park had already been cleared when Park Committee members and guests toured the area on Thursday,  August 18.  In an announcement to parents of children entering  Grade 3 in the Halfmoon Bay area, schools superintendent  John Denley said that, "In order to reduce the Halfmoon  Bay class size, all pupils in the Halfmoon Bay attendance  area entering Grade 3 this September will attend West  Sechelt Elementary School."  Sechelt Council voted a grant of $200 to help cover the  travelling expenses of those taking part in the Sunshine  Coast entry in last Saturday's PNE parade in Vancouver.  10 YEARS AQO  A proposal for a neighbourhood pub was put before  Sechelt Council Wednesday. The developer, Mr. P.  McMullen, told council that he had made an offer on property on the corner of Teredo and Inlet, dependent on both  councils' and the Liquor Administration Boards' approval  of the projecf.  15 YEARS AGO  The staff of the Coast News were enjoying a summer  vacation.  20 YEARS AGO  Mayor Fred Feeney of Gibsons and Mayor William  Swain of Sechelt both like Premier Bennett's policy of  assuming 75 percent of sewage treatment plant costs on  top of a two mill cost to ratepayers.  25 YEARS AGO  An architect's sketch was shown last week depicting  how the new premises for the Bank of Montreal's Gibsons  branch will look when completed.  Manager Edward Henniker said that the new bank will  have an area of 2100 square feet and will include a  streamlined counter with space for three tellers.  30 YEARS AGO  The Sunshine Coast Fall Fair was opened in front of the  School Hall on Friday by A.E. Ritchie, chairman of the  Village Commission.  The Sechelt Theatre has a change of program this week.  The Long Haul with Victor Mature will start Friday; The  Brothers Karamazov with Yul Brynner starts next Wednesday; Adults 60 cents, students 35 cents and children 25  cents.  35 YEARS AGO  The first car accident of downtown Gibsons look place  on Friday, August 14 when two vehicles collided near  Totem Realty. One of the drivers, who had just taken  possession of a new used Chevrolet, was travelling soulh  on Marine Drive when the minor accident occurred.  40 YEARS AGO  Gibsons moved into their new telegraph and telephone  office on the property of H. Winn on August 10. The prefabricated structure Is two stories high with room  downstairs to accomodate equipment and lots of storage  space.  The Sunshine  iiiif n  Published by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

It is liltle wonder that in a  Decima Poll of two years ago,  only two percent of Canadians  took a 'very favourable' view of  politicians.  Furthermore much of their  activity does not appear to be in  the public interest. In fact they  often seem to be unaware of the  needs and desires of the electorate. The politicians don't  seem to know whal we think,  nor 1 fear, care very much. They  are mostly guided by their  bureaucrats, occasionally seeking guidance from friends or  organized groups. They certainly don't discuss things with  most of us. Some may see their  representative around election  time, but otherwise the politician does not seek our opinion.  From a report in the Vancouver Sun of July 23 it appears  lhat Richmond council is considering changing ihe way in  which development applications  are handled to eliminate public  hearings. For some time I have  had the impression that they  didn't want to hear from us but  I didn't realize they were  prepared to pass a bylaw to  eliminate the necessity of listening!  Because we are such a disorganized lot, the politicians do  not hear us, they do listen to the  organized, they have to. They  will listen to any group that can  deliver or withhold votes on  election day. Organized  ratepayers command the respect  of the politicians, even cabinet  ministers are willing to attend  their meetings. The MP, the  MLA and the municipal or  regional representative is usually  eager to attend most meetings  called by the organized taxpayer.  The organized ratepayers  may even wish to run their own  candidate or endorse and sponsor one who will attend to their  interests. There is never any difficulty electing the candidate if  the ratepayers are well organized. They should pay the campaign expenses, put in their own  representative and don't let him  fall into the hands ot the private  sector. These are the self-  interested groups who, in pursuit of their profits, are usually  quite prepared to sacrifice the  interests of the majority and  may go so far as to cause  damage or undesirable change  to the environment.  Land developers, industrialists and other self-interested  groups require careful attention  and should be resisted in their  efforts to control government.  PENDER HARBOUR  There is a reporl in the Coast  News of June 27 headlined  "SCRD Reverses Itself On Fish  Farm Wharf" which states in  part "concerned about the  possible increase in industrial  traffic through a residential subdivision, the Planning Committee had agreed to recommend  that the Ministry of Forests and  Lands deny the application of  Sega Seafarms to build an industrial wharf at the site of the  fish farm at Daniel Point.  However, Area A Director,  Gordon Wilson, told the board  meeting last week that the proposed use falls within the current zoning's permitted uses and  he believes the board would be  legally out-of-line in recommending denial."  The possibility of such a  development has been apparent  for some time and if Gibsons  council can prepare and rush  through three bylaws in a week,  surely the regional board had  time enough to change the law if  it believed the interests of the  residents were threatened.  Along with their annual tax  notice, the trustees of the South  Pender Harbour Waterworks  District sent a questionnaire requesting the taxpayers' preference in repayment of a loan of  $230,000 proposed under a  Money Bylaw No. 83. They offer three methods of repayment  for the taxpayers' consideration.  From the chairman's remarks  at the last general meeting of the  district, I understood that the  government, being unhappy  with the small attendance at the  meeting approving the bylaw,  desired wider acceptance of the  proposed borrowing.  If this is the case then, it  would seem lo me, it is the question of borrowing lhat should  be posed.  Scuba diving adventure  Down to the sea with tanks  by Bruce Grierson  1 lay my PADI certification  card down on the counter of  Seasport Scuba and take a big  breath.  "I'd like lo rent some gear,  please. I'm going scuba  diving."  I'm going scuba diving. I've  said il, now ii must be so. I will  dive, I will sink, I will breathe  under water. I've wailed three  months to do this.  The Pacific Northwest (read  'the B.C. coasl' - Americans say  the Pacific Northwest so you  might think Washington is included, which, of course, it  isn't) is widely considered lo be  ihe third best diving area on the  planel, afler Ihe Red Sea and  ihe Great Barrier Reef. It is,  bar-none, the world's besl cold-  water site. Octopii as big as  Volvos are found here. International Wildlife and the National  Geographic have shot spreads  here. It's THE diving mecca for  those in the know.  "I haven't dived here yet.  I've been three months on the  Coast." I tell this to Bill Brooks  as he rounds up my gear. It occurs to me that living on the  Sunshine Coast and not doing  Scuba is like living next to a  library and never learning to  read.  The fact is, I'm rusty. Feeling  less than confident. Fortunately, I will be diving with an old  friend from school, who now  works as a research biologist for  a local fish farm and spends so  much time in the water he's  begun to develop a dorsal fin.  "Where will you be diving?"  asks Bill as he rings in my purchase.  "Edgemont Island," I say.  "Where's that?  I've never  heard of it."  "Oh, you know, it's...up  country. Madeira Park way."  Truth is, I don't quite know  where it is. I haven't dived here  yel. I've been three months on  the Coast.  Bill helps me out with my  equipment and cracks a big  grin. "Have a great dive," he  says. "I will," I say.  We suit up in the living room  of Doug's apartment, near  Madeira Park, overlooking  Edgemont Island. Somehow,  the occasion demands silence.  I'm pulling on a wetsuit, which,  conceptually, fits like a second  skin, allowing in only a thin  film of water which acts as insulation. This suit belongs to  Bill Brooks. It was custom  made for him. Bill is much  fuller than me in the chest and  biceps.  Doug has a dry suit, an airtight body-bag which seals at  the neck, wrists, and ankles,  and, as its name suggests, keeps  you dry. He is wearing street  clothes under it. I feel a stitch of  envy for a moment, though I  know that dry suits are not for  the uninitiated or the inexperienced. You can't get a hole  in them, for obvious reasons,  and you have to watch out for  air pockets that find their way  into your feet and invert you  like a bottle of oil and vinegar  dressing.  It is immensely ceremonial,  suiting up. Men going forth to  do battle with the elements.  Evolutionary regressionists,  returning to the womb of the  mother sea. 1 have to go to the  bathroom. I cinch the beaver-  tail a little tighter, and it passes.  It begins to rain. We each  sling the tangle of accessories  over our shoulders and begin to  I  pack them down a pebbly trail  to the shore: buoyancy compensator, snorkel, mask, lamp,  fins, gloves, tank, wetboots,  weightbelt, regulator...People  have climbed Anna Perna with  less gear than this. Halfway  down the path I'm shagged out  and I stop and set down my kit  and set to devouring blackberries growing wild on a big bush.  Doug does the same. Two full-  grown adults in rubber  costume eating berries in the  rain.  From the shore, there are  whitecaps, but the sea is not as  furious as it was earlier in the  day. I struggle for a moment  with my tank, then shamelessly  ask for help. Doug helps (he has  his tank on), and in time I'm  ready and stand all stiff and  rubbery on the rocks. I try to  get my fins on, standing up, on  the rocks. I decide it can't be  done.  "Perhaps I'll get them on in  the water," I suggest.  "That's how it's done," says  Doug, who is in the water, with  his fins on.  I walk into the sea. Water  rushes into the suit, warming  almost immediately except for  in the cavities at the chest and  biceps, where it pools, and remains cold.  Bladders inflated, we float on  our backs on the surface. We set  out for Edgemont Island. It is  no short trip. Very soon my  thighs feel weak and ropey. I  have one weak leg from the time  I stepped in a golf hole and  broke it at the shin, and the'  muscles atrophied in a cast. .  begin to boomerang back in the  wrong direction. Doug yells at'  intervals to keep me on course. X  count my flipper strokes, experiment with aquadynamics.  ',  Doug yells again when he:  reaches the island. I reach it:  shortly after, just as my right'  calf begins to spasm, and latch  on to a big rock to convalesce,  panting like a whippet.  Fifteen metres away, a seal  pops to the surface and remains  there, looking at us askance.!  We prepare to descend. Gauges:  checked. B.C. battened down-  A little spit in the mask to pre-!  vent fogging. Doug gives the!  thumbs down sign and I nod in"  agreement. It's showtime.  To be continued..i  After Rainy Days  After rainy days and the same serious doubts-  strange to walk past the golf course,  sun overhead, men putting, or teeing, whatever  they do on those green links. To the river that flows  past the clubhouse. Expensive houses on either side  of the river, a dog barking at this kid  who revs his motorcycle.

Never in my life have I seen anything  like thisl Stay with him, I think, breaking  Into a run. For Christ's sake, man, hold onl  Raymond Carver Coast News, August 22,1988  Letters to the Editor    )  Culvert to destroy Johnny Cook's Creek  Editor:  Did you know that Johnny  Cook's Creek feeds Sechelt  Marsh, flowing down Medusa  Street, to the waterway at the  Art Centre and thence to the  marsh? Sechelt District Council  has budgeted (no publicity), and  intends to run a large culvert  down the whole of what appears to be a ditch, and is in fact  Johnny Cook's Creek.  The length of the 'ditch' to be  culvertized is the feeding ground  for the beaver resident in the  marsh. Most evenings, beaver  can  be  seen swimming  and  feeding in the creek. The marsh,  the beaver, waterfowl, and  other birdlife are gems in the  community, loved by many  residents and tourists alike, not  to be lost.  The culvert could well mean  the end of the beaver and could  preface the end of the marsh.  Very possibly.  Why the culvert? Is it suggested that Ihe 'ditch' attracts  children and poses a threat? If  this is true, then cover the  marsh, Porpoise Bay and Trail  Bay to say nothing of private  swimming   pools.   The   other  reason posed is that the large  culvert proposed will carry additional runoff expected from  the hill behind Greenecourt and  Shorncliffe. Most of this runoff  is to be channelled into a storm  sewer along Ocean Avenue and  Ihence into Trail Bay. Johnny  Cook's Creek can take care of  all the runoff lhat a large culvert  can.  The other argument is that  Ihe creek should be closed in for  developments on the east side of  Tiail Avenue alongside the  creek. Well designed, attractive  bridges would look after this  problem.  It is interesting to note that  the city fathers in Vancouver  are currently fighting to keep a  creek from being 'culvertized'.  With landscaping Johnny  Cook's Creek could be very attractive.  If you feel as strongly as I,  and many others do, please let  our mayor and aldermen know.  Call them at home or al the  Municipal Hall, 885-1986.  Tom Meredith  Sechelt, B.C.

Although 1 was correctly  paraphrased at the Planning  Committee meeting of August  9/88 as saying that "the council  would henceforth make political decisions", 1 did not say  that the planner would make  planning decisions. What I said  in fact was "from now on the  Council will make policital deci  sions and Ihe Municipal Approving Officer would make  decisions on approval matters."  This is based on the intent of ihe  Land Title Acl to isolate untrained (in these mailers) politicians from the technical points  involved in subdivisions.  You also referred to the  "linking of the geographically  divided sections of Gibsons" as  a planning matter, and I agree.  However when you sat on  Council, the Council of the day  approved the plan for the area  showing the "Charman Valley  Parkway" linking upper* and  lower Gibsons, bul Ihis long  term plan did not include a  Stewart Road link-up. The  Council has reinforced this past  political decision (againsl the  planner's recommendation),  but the subdivision is "ap-  provable" in either case.  To summarize, Ihe planner is  (among other things) an advisor  lo Council whose actions are  ratified by Council and the  Municipal Approving Officer is  a technician who is trained in  technical aspects including sub  divisions who operates unfettered at arm's length from  Council.  It is clear that the positions of  Planner and Municipal Approving Officer are diverse and if  Ihey are to be accomplished by  one person he must have the full  confidence of Council and be a  talented and capable person  who can keep the roles separate.  Fortunately we have such a  person.  John S.

I take exception to the wording of this report that infers  that the Festival of the Written  Arts barbecue was 'tainted' by  members of the Ocean Resource  Conservation Alliance.  We distributed pamphlets to  inform patrons of the Festival  of our concerns in regards to the  environmental, social and  economic impacts that the fish  farms may have on our community and the province of  British Columbia.  We deterred no one from  entering Rockwood Lodge or  attending the barbecue. We  simply offered information,  displayed a map, sold bumper  stickers and asked people to  sign a petition.  The majority of the patrons  of the Festival barbecue signed  our petition (six pages of  signatures), made contributions  and encouraged us wholeheartedly to continue and increase our opposition to fish  farms. We were pleasantly surprised by the degree of interest  Herb Steinbrunner  Editor:  In  his  senior years,  Herb  Steinbrunner liked Io whittle  and fish, but in his young days.  he was one of the old school of  loggers around Gibsons.  1 recall that he could take on  a large fir log with his chinook  six foot crosscut saw and swamping axe, saw, split and pile you  a cord of wood in a single day.

What did 'taint' the Festival  was the decision by the Festival  directors to involve the Festival,  for monetary gain, in the promotion of fish farming and in  particular "Wood Bay" farm  fish.  They were aware that Wood  Bay Salmon Farm is likely the  most controversial fish farm in  the province because of the way  it was placed in a residential  area with no consultation and  little or no regard for the Land  Act, government policy or simple justice. Is it possible that  Ihey were unduly influenced by  some organizers of the Festival  with direct interests in the fish  feed lot industry?  The irony of this situation is  that we had decided not to  picket the barbecue as we felt  we would not receive the support that actually did come  forth. However threats of  supreme court injunctions,  labour lawyers and the wrath of  the entire aquaculture industry  changed our decision.  These threats to deny us our  basic rights of free speech and  assembly only served to aggravate the situation.  In my opinion any 'tainting'  of the Writers Festival was  brought about by the decisions  of its organizers and was  therefore of their own creation.  When they decided to plunge  the Fesiival inlo the middle of a  very controversial issue in this  province they shouldn't  realistically have expected to  come out of it unscathed.  We had advised them of the  possible consequences well in  advance, iheir only apparent  response was threats, the decisions were theirs, not ours.  Now there are rumours of  law suits and retaliation. I suggest they let sleeping dogs lie  and avoid any further 'tainting'  of the Festival.

At the regular meeting of  Gibsons Council Tuesday,,  Peterson moved "that council  approve all subdivision applications before the approving officer signs them."  "The scheme would take the  onus off the planner and the  planning department," he said,  "and avoid any future conflicts  between council and the planning officer, such as the one  which developed in recent weeks  with the Oceanmount development project."  "And this way," added  Peterson,, "council would be  aware of any subdivisions in the  town."  Although seconded, Peterson's motion was defeated in a  council vote. While able to appreciate the intent of the motion, most members of council  saw immediate leaks in its  seams.  Municipal Clerk Lorraine  Goddard suggested the trouble  with the motion lay in its wording. As has become clear from  the Oceanmount issue, only the  Approving Officer has authority to approve subdivisions.  Goddard suggested changing  'approve' to 'be made aware  of.  "That," said Peterson,  "wouldn't be acceptable lo me.  Council mighl be dead set  against a plan that would be ap-  provable by an approving officer."  Planning Officer Rob  Buchan said he felt lhat the current system has a good track  record, and there is no reason  for the problem to arise again.  "In any small community,  it's customary for council to be  made aware of subdivisions,  and Gibsons is no exception.  Historically, council has always  accepted my recommendations  on subdivision approvals.  Oceanmount was the first, and  only time a problem has been  encountered."  Alderman John Reynolds  said he felt the municipality  should seek legal advice before  adopting a motion such as  Peterson's.  "I'd be afraid to vote on this  right now in case we are putting  ourselves in a difficult legal  position," he said.  Japanese students  say Sayonara  by Bruce Grierson  There may not have been a  dry eye on the dock Tuesday as  the 17 Japanese students who  had made Gibsons their  overseas home for three weeks,  bid 'sayonara' to their host  families and departed on the  Horseshoe Bay ferry.  The students had come to the  coast on a cultural exchange  with One World Friendship, a  non-profit, non-denominational  group whose objective is to bring together children from different countries.  During their stay here, coordinated by Gwen Robertson,  the students were treated to a  barbecue al the Yacht Club,  lunch at the Tea House, archery  and roast pig at White Tower  Park, and day trips to the  Skookumchuck Provincial Park  rapids and the best fishing spots  on the Sunshine Coast via the  Alibi Wahoo. They were accompanied on many of the  outings by another contingent  of visiting students based in  Sechelt, who left August 13.  "It was a very different experience for them," says  Robertson, explaining that in  addition to the cultural adjust-  capilano  college  AQUACULTURE  TECHNICIAN PROGRAM  There are still a few eeate available In the 8  month Aquaculture Technician Program for  198848.

Robertson says the love  shown by the host families was  more than reciprocated, and a  great bond developed between  the billets and the students.  "The consensus was that they  were here too short a time."  The three week immersion,  and the classes the students  received in basic English and  North American colloquialisms  should stand them in good stead  as they travel through San Francisco, Los Angeles and Hawaii,  before returning home to  Japan.  Coast  garbage  causing  concern  Local government officials  are scrambling to find a solution to the problem of garbage  disposal from the aquaculture  industry on the Sunshine Coast.  Last week regional director  Gordon Wilson met with  Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch and  representatives from the  Aquaculture Association, the  B.C. Salmon Farmers Association and the Ministry of  Agriculture and Fisheries to  discuss the issue.  Gordon Wilson told the  regional district Planning Committee that there are currently  35 tons of 'morts' (dead fish)  being dumped in the Sechelt  dump site each week and the  estimation is that by 1990 there  will be approximately 3000 tons  per year.  The municipal district of  Sechelt, he said, has agreed to  provide an off-loading facility  in Porpoise Bay, adjacent to a  fish processing plant, with a  containment facility where the  morts can be stored until they  can be transported to the dump  where they will be buried.  The problem of industrial  garbage, such as feed bags, was  also discussed, and Hans  Berisch of the B.C. Salmon  Fanners Association expressed  his organization's concern  about the problem, Wilson said,  suggesting that criminal action  should be taken. The issue will  be raised and discussed with the  Waste Management Branch at  the next meeting of the  Foreshore Advisory Task  Force.  Domestic garbage from fish  farm sites is also an increasing  problem and the solution appears to be the setting up of a  barge system, where fish farms  can pump their domestic sewage  and garbage onto a barge which  would carry it to a dump site.  _*^9_______v_  Sunnycrest Mall,  Gibsons  rn  100% Locally Owned & Operated  Prices effective:  Mon., Aug. 22  to Sun., Aug. 28  OPEN    9:30 am'6:00 Pm  w r "' *      Fridays 'till 9:00 pm  Sundays 11:00 am ��� 5:00 pm  Kraft Salad Dressing Limit 2 With A Minimum  MIRACLE    M50de  11  WHIP  Cafe/7/'  MACARONI &  CHEESE 225gm  Purex  BATHROOM  TISSUE  F.B.I.

It is the first time  beli-logging has been done on the Coast in several years (see story  this page). ���Bran Grierson photo  Helicopters fly  local logs out  by Bruce Grierson  As you read this, huge logs  are being plucked like slivers  from inaccessible forest land  near Port Mellon, flown up and  over a mountain ridge, and  deposited in a pile for further  processing at the Avalon Log  Sorting division of Rivtow  Straits. It's the first time in  several years that helicopter logging has been done on the Sunshine Coast.  The workhorse of the project  is a '61' cargo helicopter, owned  by Okanagan Helicopters of  Richmond, and operated by a  Vancouver-based crew who flies  in daily to log the stand.  Powered by twin 1240 horsepower engines, the '61' can  hoist a 10,000 pound load. (For  all this, it is only a light-  heavyweight by commercial  helicopter standards. The  10,000 hp Skycrane is larger,  and the Green Giant, which was  used for troop transport in Viet  Nam, is ten times as large). The  engines of the '61' create  enough lift that when the load is  dropped, the craft jolts sharply  upwards. There are dents in the  ceiling of the cockpit where  hard-hatted pilots have sprung  off the seat and into the roof.  The mechanics of the helicop-  ter logging process are  remarkably simple. As the  helicopter hovers over the  loading site, a chokerman on  the ground attaches the hook  from the dangling line to a pre-  cut, pre-choked log. The  helicopter then lifts the load,  carries it to a clearing,  disengages it electronically with  a switch in the cockpit, and flies  back to do another circuit. The  Port Mellon route takes roughly  two or three minutes to complete.  Delicate and time-consuming  and almost prohibitively expensive, helicopter logging is used  as somewhat of a last resort,  that is, only in situations where  timber cannol be removed any  other way. The Port Mellon  stand contains about 15,000  metres of red cedar, cypress, fir,  hemlock and balsam, 'high  grade' timber in logging  parlance. It's worth enough to  make helicopter logging at least  feasible (if not certainly profitable), but not enough to  justify building an access road  into it.  Chris Danroth of Gibsons  owned the rights to the timber  now being logged, before selling  them to Liftcorp of Vancouver,  in a deal finalized only a few  weeks ago. To Danroth, the  operation simply wasn't worth  the risk.  "It's a half-million dollar investment," he says, figuring in  the capital outlay, the helicopter  time of 50 dollars a minute, and  Ihe cost of processing the logs  for sale on the open market.  Since the wood must be unloaded, graded, scaled, and bundled  for booming before it reaches  the marketplace, it can take as  long as six weeks before cut  timber is actually sold, and the  initial investment is recouped.  Liftcorp has secured financing from Noranda Forest Products, who charge interest, and  a brokerage fee on the loan.  Helicopter logging will continue in the Port Mellon area  for another three weeks.  ���of**^*  The Sunshine  Mil 111  Notice Board  Mult Cfilldnn ot Alcoholics Meetings on Monday evenings at 7:30 pm In St. Mary's  Church Hall, Gibsons; Thursdays al 7:30 pm al Ihe Mental Heallh Centre in Sechell.

BUILDING COMMITTEE  On August 12, Mike Timms,  John Miller, Belly Callis and  your scribe, had an afternoon  meeting with our MP Ray Skelly. We again placed our cards  on the table and presented our  plea for federal funding to get  our activity centre underway.  Although Ray was sympathetic  and helpful, our committee is  slill looking for a major grant  prior to sod-turning.  Why a group, who has paid  taxes in most cases for 50 or 60  years, should have lo grovel for  a half million dollars for a good  cause from our federal government is beyond comprehension.  Recently a 10 million dollar  grant was made in Ontario to  build housing and a recreation  cenlre for the Tamils, who waded ashore on Ihe easl coast last  year. Perhaps we should start  taking off our shoes and socks!  Maybe lhal would work! But  really, il has become a  ridiculous situation and really  frustrating.  Please turn to page 9  E3 ONEIDA  :5 PC.

An assistant to the  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Grace Rutherford  is home again  by Ruth Forrester, 88S-2418  This seems to be the week for  hearing about some of our  friends and neighbours who  have recently been hospitalized.  Firsl of all, it was a joy to  hear Grace Rutherford on the  phone the other day. Mosl of us  have been concerned aboul her  condilion as wc knew so Utile  only that she was a very sick  lady. However, all is well now  and Grace is back on the peninsula and at Ihe present time is  with her sister who is taking  care of her until she is stronger  again.

The charm  and fascination of the material  is apparent at this reading.  Of course, the face of  Knowlton Nash is one of the  most familiar at the Festival due  to his years of television experience. His is a distinguished  career as foreign correspondent  and broadcaster.  Relaxed and dapper in  sweaier and slacks the veteran  communicator regales the  crowd with an interesting talk  full of amusing anecdoles and  was a great hit with another  sold-rlght-oul crowd in the big  lent.  P.K. Page has been publishing her poetry for over 50 years,  hut it is difficult to believe this  possible from ihe tall, slim  elegance of her bearing, striking  in its youthl'ulncss.  She reads poems from  various stages of her career in a  clear, cultured speaking voice.  She is one of the few poets of  our knowledge who were born  to whai can still be called the  'privileged class'. The chosen  poems are powerful and of  dazzling imagery.  In the second part of her program she switches into prose  and reads several vivid sketches  from Brazilian Journey. Hers is  a polished and enjoyable performance and merits the enthusiastic applause it garners.  The Festival is a feast indeed,  and olhers read who deserve  more attention than space per  mits: Lynne Bowen's historical  and lyrical material sticks in the  mind; Scottish-born Dr. Morris  Gibson is a crowd pleaser with a  relaxed and witty talk, reading  several amusing selections from  his books. Dr. Gibson became a  writer on the advice of fellow  Scot James Herriott, he of the  veterinarian tales.  Novelist Ann Ireland and  poet Fred Wah, charm and  entertain with their presentations; and veteran writer  Christie Harris, too, delights an  appreciative audience.  Perhaps of the entire  weekend's offerings, only noted  oral historian Barry Broadfoot  sirikes a sour note. His  unabashed political bigotry does  not sit well with this Sunshine  Coast summer audience.  It is a minor quibble in a  weekend which proved a literary  smorgasbord of delight and information.  The Sunshine Coast Festival  of the Written Arts is a most  welcome and important addition to our lives. To Betty Keller  and her hard-working volunleers who made it all possible  are we all indebted. The Festival  is an annual enrichment.

Summer's been short  this year and once the weather  becomes cool and unsettled it  often stays that way.  When we were growing up in  Vancouver it seemed to always  start raining in time for the  PNE parade. It looks like it will  be the same this year.  I always feel sorry for the  people who have just two or  three weeks holiday. They wait  all year for this, and then the  weather turns bad. My  daughter's one of them this  year. A single' mother, she  works hard all year. Now, as  her vacation's starting, a camping trip planned, the grey clouds  move in.  To change ihe subject: I had  a call from Mr. Steve Marsh  asking me to bring lo the attention of Egmont area residents  an information seminar on the  operation of Ihe four lish processing plants on the coast.  There are two in Egmont.  The seminar is at Capilano  College in Sechelt. It will give  information on the industry, the  jobs, the wages, the opportunities.

She queried,  "Is there pesticide on these berries? then, jokingly, "Is there a  boycott on them?" When  you're born into a family of environmentalists and activists  you learn young!  Wilderness  discussed  by Rose Nicholson  Presenl provincial guidelines  for wilderness areas are so stringent that it is unlikely that  any area on the Sunshine Coast  would qualify, and a lengthy  discussion at last week's committee meeting pointed out the  need for a modified version of  current provincial government  specifications.  Committee member Dave  Blakewell cited the situation  that has arisen in the U.S. where  unrealistic regulations even  make it illegal to use helicopters  to rescue injured hikers in  wilderness areas.  "We need lo look at an area"  said Blakewell, "and find out  what its potential is, before it is  lost to us forever."  Alternate member Stan Dixon called for a moratorium on  development to avoid the possibility of irreversible alternations  to the environment, where, he  said, "we won't have any  wilderness left."  The committee agreed that  further study was necessary  before recommendations could  be made.

Apart from a year of travel  and another year al UBC to gel  a teacher training certificate in  Secondary Social Studies, Clifford Smilh has been a teacher  and administrator in British  Columbia schools since 1967.  Linda and Clifford met as  undergraduates at UBC, were  married in ihe early fall of 1967  and ihen began leaching in a  iwo-room school in Fort St.  John. Linda had her certificate  from the three-year teacher  training program, and Clifford,  who had graduated that spring  with an honours B.A. in  History, a letter of permission.  The next year, 1968-69, ihey  returned lo Vancouver where  Clifford look the required  teacher training program. Further study at the University of  Victoria earned him an M. Ed.  in Education Administration,  granted in 1975.  The Smiths went next lo Port  Alberni and taught there until  1972.  "We decided lo travel and  even cashed our pension con-  tribulions. We wenl to Europe  and Africa. But after a year we  returned to Porl Alberni where  in lime 1 got on staff as a  librarian and Linda as principal  of another school. She was the  first in the family to be a principal."  "I laught all subjects, from  grades 4 to 7," Clifford Smilh  said, "in Fort St. John and in  the Alberni district. And  English and Drama in junior  high; English Literature in  Senior Secondary."  Clifford was principal of  Ucluelet Elementary in 1976  when he was appointed vice-  principal of Soulh Peace Secondary in Dawson Creek.  After Iwo years there, he was  appointed principal of Pleasant  Valley Secondary in Armstrong  where he remained for eight  years.  Clifford Smith saw a great  deal of the world in his  childhood. He was born in 1945  in Mauritius where his father  served in the British Colonial  service.  "I first went to school in Fiji.  It was a boarding school for indigenous peoples and my father  was the headmaster," said  Smith, "and later 1 went to  school in whal was then  Nyasaland, a part of Rhodesia,  where my father had become  head of the civil service. Then,  in 1958 when 1 was 13 my father  sent me to his old school in  Bristol, England."

And British Columbia had a special appeal to  me," said Smith.  "Consequently, when 1 heard  of a bursary in Ihis province  thai offered British students  four years of study in a university here in B.C., 1 applied. And  that's what broughl me to B.C.,  and it's here that I've stayed."  He added, "In every place  that I have lived in B.C., there  has always ben someone who  was familiar with the Sunshine  Coasl. 1 come well informed of  my new home."  Clifford Smith is greatly impressed by the amount of time  school board members devote  to board affairs.  "They have a very good plan  for education and there's optimism, 1 feel, for good things  ahead in the school district. It's  my responsibility to see that  board policy is implemented."  "What is important to me,"  he told me, "is to see that we  are getting results for the  students in our district and to  ask ourselves, 'are they getting  what they need?' "  "I feel," said Smith, "that  everyone in the district has a  responsibility to the children  and to the community. Our task  is to give our children the very  best intheir school education."  Clifford and Linda Smith at  present live on Anchor Road in  Sechelt with their four children,  two girls (Megan and Claire)  who will attend Chatelech, and  two boys (Gresham and Blake)  who will attend the elementary  school, one of them in French  immersion.

Diabetes can reduce life expectancy by 30 percent, yet  Canada does not have comprehensive data available on the  number of Canadians affected  by the disease, its complications  and Ihe resulting costs to society.  "ll is estimated lhat diabetes  and its i-omplicalions costs  Canadian heallh care programs  over $1.6 billion per year." says  Morse Silden, President of Ihe  Canadian Diabetes Association  and member of the Advisory  Board. "Our association  believes that by implementing  the recommendations of the  Task Force, these costs could be  reduced significantly and Ihe  health care services available to  those affected by diabetes  would be improved."  The Canadian Diabetes  Association is a non-profit  charitable organization with 170  branches across Canada. The  association provides support  services to persons affected by  diabetes and in 1988 allocated  $2.8 million towards diabetes  research projects in Canada.

Requirements are that the  privately owned forest land consist of at least 50 acres, that the  landowner agree to maintain the  land under forest management  for a minimum of 15 years and  that a minimum of 20 percent  of the cost of any forestry work  carried oul under the program  be borne by the landowner.  Projects designed to initiate  or improve forest growth are  eligible for assistance, including  inventory and management  development, backlog reforestation, thinning, site rehabilitation, conifer release and pest  control.  The program has been designed to assist people who own  small areas of forest land,  rather than to provide funds for  large industrial forest holdings,  and the Forestry Advisory  Committee feels that some Sunshine Coast landowners may be  eligible.

Coast News, August 22.1988  LEISURE  Pnges From A Lite Loq  .lorn (John John Morris) professes his undying love for Emma  (Nest Lewis) during Driftwood Players' presentation of 'Betrayal'.  Summer Play Parade  Pinter play  well-served  by Bruce Grierson  The Driftwood Players' Summer Play Parade wound up in  grand style Saturday with the  final performance of Harold  Pinter's Betrayal.  Billed as a 'sophisticated  comedy', and certainly one of  the more unusual by Ihe British  playwright, Betrayal involves a  love triangle among Iwo old  friends in the book publishing  business, and the woman in  their lives. Emma (perhaps a  reference to literature's most  famous adultress, Emma  Bovary), is married to Robert  and unfaithful to Jerry because  she's seeing Casey. Jerry is unfaithful to Judith because he's  been seeing Emma, which  Robert knows, bul doesn't  know Jerry knows he knows,  er...no. Well, you gel ihe picture. Nothing really extraordinary about that.  What is peculiar aboul ihis  play is lhat it moves backward  through time. It opens in 1977  and shuttles loward the ending  in 1968, slowly unravelling the  tangled web so that we may see  exactly how it was woven.  What Pinter is' up to is  anyone's guess. Is he trying to  tell us thai integrity transcends  time? Are we to believe thai  scenes three Ihrough nine are  happening in Jerry's mind? Or  Emma's mind? Are we lo question what's real and whal isn't?  1 personally suspect it's all  jusi a gimmick. That Pinter got  bored with the theatrical status  quo and decided to stand temporal structure on its ear. But  whatever its origin, a play thai  WAHHAB  Psychic Readings  Life Counsellor  886-9747  moves backwards presents a fair  challenge to its players, who  can'l draw inspiration from the  natural progression of events.  None of which mattered a  Iwig to John John Morris, apparently, who clearly gol better  and beller as the play progressed. Morris reminds me a lot of  ihe American actor Wallace  Shawn - who played Ihe straight  man in My Dinner wilh Andre  -in speech, in mannerisms, in  slage presence. He's very comfortable and very competent in  this role.  Paul Murphy adapled ralher  well himself as Ihe relatively  stable, analytical betrayed husband Robert. Murphy displayed  some good comic liming and  good reactive acting, particularly in ihe 'confrontation' scene  wilh Emma in a Venice hotel  room.  Bul il was, in the end, Nesl  Lewis who stole the show. Nest  Lewis could hold her own on  the professional stage. In the  role of Emma, Lewis wenl from  frivolous lo dour to deeply  melancholy with grace, and flat-  out commanded the stage.  Jay Pomfret and Matt  Chamberlain marked able  cameos as a couple of waiters.  As with all of Pinter's work,  Betrayal relies heavily on timing. It's performance art. The  bricks of Pinter's dramatic construction are the spaces between  speech. Pensive spaces and  defensive spaces. Spaces to  mark points scored and opportunities missed. Co-directors  Dianne Evans and Nest Lewis  did a nice job, by and large, but  I musi confess to feeling that  longer beats were in order in  two or three places. The audience responded vigorously  and appropriately throughout,  though, so maybe I'm out to  lunch.  Betrayal is aboul the power  of what isn't said, and in this  sense, it's a perfect foil for part  one of the Summer Play Parade  double-bill, Crimes of the  Heart, about Ihree loquacious  sisters who grow together by  sharing and telling all.  There's no question lhal Ihis  year's Summer Play Parade was  a huge success, and the Driftwood Players deserve lots of  credit. Coasters are lucky lo  have theatre of Ihis calibre in  iheir own back yard.  Member of  ALLIED...

This time we struck  paydirt. First we stumbled  across the cement foundation of  a house, then the rusted  skeleton of a truck, then the  carefully arranged slones of a  long vanished rock garden. The  remains of dead Minto lay close  to the ground, sheeted with sill,  impossible lo spot from the  road, but Ihey were everywhere.  We wandered reflectively and  for some lime among the  sprawling remnants of this  once-thriving place, moved  along barely discernible streets,  past buldings thai existed now,  only in memory. Il was ralher  like walking Ihrough some  forgotten graveyard, except that  there were no headstones lo  mark (he names.  Minto did not have a long  life, Buill in 1934, it existed for  little more lhan 20 years. It was  a planned community, modern  for ils time, and by all accounts,  a happy one. But it was sacrificed lo make way for the reservoir. We strolled through what  liltle remained of it, broken fire  hydrants, rust-rotted bedspr-  ings, a single mud-filled boal.  Beyond us, a vagrant wind  whiffed up dusl from the flats  like the ghosts of the people  who once lived here.  We had fulfilled our mission  in ihe Bridge River country. It  was lime to head south again, to  the Stein Valley.  We made Ihe long haul back  to Lillooet. This time we cruised  right through the town, crossed  the 'Bridge of the 27 Camels', a  iribute lo the abortive use of  these animals during the gold  rush, and continued south. We  were thankful for the cloud  cover that was keeping the  temperature down, for our final  destination this day was a town  often called 'The Hotspot of  Canada'.  Lytton sils al the juncture of  ihe Thompson and Fraser  Rivers. Founded at roughly the  same time as Lillooet, it has  other claims to fame besides its  high summer temperatures. In  its earliest days Lytton was a  typical boom town, an important stop on the stagecoach  route to the gold fields. Laid  out by the Royal Engineers, il  had its full complement of bars  and brothels.  Over the years, Lytton has  passed through several periods  of wild prosperity and deep  recession. Its leanest years came  in ihe 30's and 40's when it was  ravaged by a series of disastrous  fires that destroyed many local  businesses and crippled its  economy. Lytlon was revitalized by the building of (he Trans  Canada Highway in the 1950's,  and has remained reasonably  healthy ever since. Today it has  become a centre for white-water  rafting and boasts the largest  ginseng farm in Norlh America.  II is also the closest access point  to ihe Stein Valley.  We pulled into Lytlon  around 6 pm, after an interesting trip along the east side  of the upper Fraser, through  more unexplored counlry, full  of abandoned farms and traces  of the original stagecoach road.  Tired from our travels, we  secured a berth at an old hotel  in the old pari of town, had an  excellent supper of beef stew,  opled for a nap and slept for a  couple of hours.  One thing was readily apparent as we strolled the quiet  streets. There isn't a whole lol  of nighl life in Lytton. What liltle there is centres around the  old lown's sole pub, and it was  ihree quarters empty. We contented ourselves wilh checking  out a few heritage buildings and  Ihe grave of Chief David  Spintlum, who did much to  stem antagonism between Indians and whites, in the explosive gold rush period. We  watched a lighted passenger  train below the town, rattling  north on its way to Prince  George. In due course, we  returned to the hotel and slept  heavily again.

(When you see tnc word there  }tre automatic associations  made with other words such as  chaste', 'untouched', 'uncon-  aminated', elc, etc. The fact is  hat people with Virgo Suns get  but through life's mill just like  everyone else and probably  don'l even survive adolescence  "ecling 'untouched'.  But in the realm of sym-  olism, the essence of the virgin  ,s purity, and purification itself  is a process. It is not where you  start from but what you end up  with. That, in a sense, is the  driving force behind the ego  represented by the Virgo Sun.  You are constantly struggling  within yourself, and the world  around you, tc purge the imperfections which are part of  being born human.  ll lakes a lot of courage to  face your own flaws and  weaknesses, and it is understandable lhal sometimes you just  get tired of scouring out your  own soul, and without realizing  it you starl to look for the  perfection you seek in those  around you. The irouble is lhat  you won't find it there either,  although you can fool yourself  for a while.  Virgos have a tendency to  idealize the people lhat Ihey care  about. It can be anyone: a  parent, a friend, a business  partner, and often a lover. Bul  these people are all human too,  and inevitably they reveal their  human flaws. The result is that  you feel let down, betrayed and  disillusioned, ll hurts.  This, too, is part of your own  purification process.

Sometimes, especially if  one works for a busy community newspaper, the lunchtime  priority is nutrition and fast service, and, no, 1 can'l possibly  make a reservation, and no, waiting is absolutely out of the  question.  On those days 1 thank whatever powers that be for Ihe existence of Sechelt's Chicken Shack, located on Cowrie Street,  right in the middle of the hustle and busile of town, just down  the slreel from the office, and always ready to present me  wilh a good, hot, no-nonsense meal, righl now.  Last week, with several deadlines rapidly aproaching for  three Coast News staff members, the Chicken Shack provided jusi what we needed to find our second wind and make il  through the day.  For me, il was a hearty cheese burger and a rich milkshake  (chocolate, my favourite). The burger was exceptional, righl  down to the refreshingly crisp lettuce and lomato and sumptuous melted cheese, and the milkshake was ihick and  chocolatey, and, well, there's noi really anything more that  can be said about the perfect milkshake.  For my two co-workers, the order of the day was Chicken  Shack chicken dinners, the specialty of the house, I presume,  and 1 must admit that I sampled their choice too.  The chicken, fried just right in batter that wasn't over-  salted or over-seasoned, was tender and tasty, but that wasn't  the whole meal. The dinners came complete with fresh buns,  crispy coleslaw with a creamy dressing, and french fries lhat  far exceed our expectations of fast-food fries, fries that tasted  like real homemade, home-peeled and home-cooked garden  potatoes.  When we had finished our meals, there wasn't a scrap of  food left on the table, and we were happily sated, ready to  take on the world again, at least until lunchtime tomorrow.  Although the Chicken Shack offers an ideal solution to the  lunchtime rush (take it back to the office) patrons may dine  European-style on the picnic tables outside and watch the  world, or at least Sechelt, go by.  Another alternative, which I plan lo try soon, while our  kind summer weather remains, is to let the Chicken Shack  cook up my favourite fast food, then scuttle off to some  scenic local waterfront spot and enjoy a better view than any  restaurant can offer, one without walls or glass.

In fact our problems are getting worse because our world has become one country and its problems can only be solved by the united  will of all its peoples.  Over a century ago, llahi'u'llah, the Pounder of the Baha'i Faith  ���.aid: "rh>- veil-being of mankind, its peace and security are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established,"  The teachings Haha'ullah has brought from God in this age show  the way to unity tor all mankind.   As we in the Baha'i' community  try to put them into practice, we are finding dial there are no shortcuts, unity conies first.

Rain lashes ladies  by Frank Nanson  The Tuesday ladies had a  heavy rain storm to deal with  lasl week and, as a result, only  16 decided to play. A Three  Worst Holes contest was  played, and the winners were  Kay Little, Eleanor Thompson  and Olive Shaw.  Our Monday night Twilight-  ers, also had a bad time this  week, with very few turning out  due to the rain. The two-player  scramble was won by Bob  Mahar and Connie Hobbs, with  second place taken by Howard  Webster and Nan McFarlane.  All twilighters are reminded of  the wind-up dinner on August  29. Please call 885-5071 or  885-5431 if you will be attending that event.  The senior men held their annual East vs West Sunshine  Coast tournament, with the  Wesl winning the evenl 21 to 18.  This is the first time in the  memory of most that the  western group have won this  event. We, of the normally-  powerful East, have concluded  that there were far too many  imports allowed on the ferry  that morning, and a much  lighter watch will be in effect  next year.  Sarah Bennett rips in a serve during a women's doubles match at  the Sea Cavalcade tennis lournament in Gibsons.

Buchan made the same suggestion at the Monday hearing,  and met opposition from local  businessman An McGuiness,  who said he feared it would be  difficult to find financing for  the project if a restrictive covenant were put in place.  Buchan explained that there  were 'attendant legal difficulties' in maintaining a population of only retirees.  Any clause which restricts occupancy to members of an identifiable group could be challenged under the Canadian Charter  of Rights and Freedoms.  "Alternatives (to a restrictive  covenant) are apparently being  explored," said Buchan, adding  that the options will be  presented at tomorrow night's  meeting, which, as always, the  public is free lo attend.  by Bruce Grierson  Following questions raised at  a public hearing Monday, Gibsons Council has called a special  meeting to discuss a retirement  village proposed for Lower Gibsons.  Many of those present echoed  the fears of the Gibsons  residents who attended a rezoning meeting in April, shortly  before which the Marina Place  proposal was first tabled. Indeed, some of the citizens who  attended the rezoning meeting  reappeared Monday, including  Kirby Carson.

Rarely has an important  Coast moment passed without a  Sylvia Blackwell cake gracing a  nearby table. When the Sechelt  office of the Coast. News  celebrated its paper anniversary,  John and Fran cut a Blackwell  cake. When the McNeil family  relocated, their last supper was  an edible Blackwell bus, replete  with a sugar-paste Signi leaning  oul a rear window, her two gold  medals swinging in the wind.  But it was the Beachcombers'  10th anniversary that demanded  what Blackwell calls 'the mosl  interesting cake I've ever done.'  The Beachcombers' cake was  a 2x3 foot comestible replica of  Molly's Reach, made from icing  sugar, marzipan, and sugar  paste.  "The Beachcombers special  effects people built the facade  out of wood, and had it flown,  with all the specifications, up to  Sechelt by courier," she explains.  The cake was used on television ads promoting the show's  10th anniversary.  Sylvia hails from Birmingham, England, where she attended a technical baking  school for four years. It was an  intensive program. The young  undergraduate took a variety of  science and business courses as  well as a selection of practical  etudes, testing baking products  for composition and protein  content. (The routine instilled in  her an uncompromising commitment to quality). She emerged from the program with a  diploma equivalent to a degree  in food technology, and a  future husband, Brian, who  now manages the Bakery  Department at Shop-Easy.  In 1966, the Blackwells moved to Canada, and Sylvia set to  work developing new lines for a  Vancouver cookie manufacturer. But opportunities for advancement in the field crumbled, as most of this type of work  was being done in the east; the  pair moved across the Strait to  Sechelt, and Sylvia moved  straight into the dual roles of  cakemaker and mother of three.  Now she is an institution on  the Sunshine Coast, having  carved a reputation of technical  skill and a soaring imagination.  The problem with being so  good, of course, is that she's in  constant demand. Currently  Sylvia works every day, constructing some 90-100 cakes per  week. To relieve some of the  pressure, she is training two  assistants.  But the fact remains that no  one on the Coast, and few in  Vancouver, can do what Sylvia  Blackwell can.  Sylvia says she hasn't lost any  of those skills, but admits that  they're not being fully taxed.  "I often wish I'd be asked to  create a special wedding cake  for 500 people, and price would;  be no object."  This, she says, is just a;  dream. Which begs the que?-i  tion: What, if not fruit and:  sugar and hazelnut filling, are!  dreams made of, anyway?

Bubble gum warning sounded  Editor:  OK folks - if you are now up  to your eyebrows in concerns of  'how do I raise my child in a  commercially exploitive world',  there are still more problems.  As a high school principal, I  am really concerned about the  casual and callous disregard  some adults have for our young  people when there is a buck to  be made.  I am writing this letter to protest a particularly pernicious  and disgusting form of exploitation available at many stores in  Sechelt. Before you read further, ask your children if they  know about 'Garbage Pail Kids  bubble gum'.  It was only in the past four  days that I heard, with some  disbelief, about the contents of  the "Garbage Pail Kids" bubble gum packages. To find out  first hand, my youngest son  obligingly nipped down to the  local corner store and bought  me four packages. That gave  me 20 cards (he kept the bubble  gum). I will describe four cards  selected at random.  Card one shows 'Snotty Dotty'. It is a winter scene with  Dotty stuck to the ground by a  frozen gout of green mucous  emanating from her nose. Card  two has 'Creamed Gene'  skewered on a horseshoe post.  He has a fractured skull from  which the post protrudes, and is  bleeding from being struck in  the face by a horseshoe.  'Hunter Punter' on card three is  in one of the more innocuous  scenes. His leg is disintegrating  as he kicks a football. The  fourth card is 'Chucking  Charlie' who is vomiting into  soup cans as they come down  the assembly line in a canning  factory. On other cards there  are pictures of a child  defecating in his pants with  urine dripping oul; a child licking a dead rat on a stick; a boy  being pulled down a toilet by a  large, green, dripping hand, and  so on.  The flip side of these cards  also has interesting fodder for  our children's developing  minds. About half the cards can  be assembled to form a mosaic  depicting a boy (?) having his  face ripped off by a vacuum  cleaner. The other half have  jokes on them in the form of  comic strips. For example:  Customer in coffee shop: "That  raisin pie looks delicious! Give  me a piece of that raisin pie".  Waitress (wearing a Playboy  bunny costume) as she shoos the  flies off the pie: "I'm sorry,  we're out of raisin pie. How  about a slice of custard pie?  (referring to the pie now free of  flies). Customer is shown  throwing-up (in vast quantities)  on to the counter.  By now you should have the  gist of this reprehensible product. I assure you, the cards explore most areas of depraved,  racist, sexist, violent, destructive, anti-human and hate-filled  behaviour. I have no quarrel  with adults who want to buy  this product (though I would  look askance at their value  system); however, children  should not be exposed to or  have access to them. Children  have not been given the intellectual tools necessary to critically  examine the kinds of images being portrayed.  As reasonable and responsible adults it is our task in society  and in our schools to initiate  our children into rational, sensitive and intellectually honest  thought. The "Garbage Pail  Kids" bubble gum is a  disgraceful, deliberate and base  form of exploitation of  children. Find out where they  are being sold and protest to the  store managers or owners. I  would bet that most of them are  not aware of what is in those  packages.

Editor:  When Ihey sang 'Do, Re, Me'  in Japanese and ihen in English,  they brought applause and  cheers from all ihe host families  and friends gathered to say  Sayonara to 17 delightful young  women who had been their  cherished guests for three  weeks.  In true Japanese style these  beautiful young women  welcomed Iheir host families to  a farewell party and entertained  them with song, speeches of  welcome and sorrow at parting,  with a lovely Chinese dance performed in costumes designed  and made by them and provided  a delightful buffet of both  Canadian and Japanese dishes.  Several of the girls wore traditional costumes and all were  smiling and self-assured until  the final moments, when there  was not a dry eye in the hall.  I wish to publicly lhank Ihose  wonderful people who took  such warm-hearted care of these  ambassadors from Japan. Their  constant   support,   ideas   for  Janet  Dolman  Editor:  The untimely passing of  Janet Dolman will be deeply felt  by the community as a whole,  and particularly by the arts and  culture groups of the Sunshine  Coast.  Janet worked hard to  enhance the lifestyle of those  living here on the coast and was  always eager to share her talents  with a larger circle of people on  the mainland as well.  As Vice-President of the  Rockwood Lodge Society,  Janet obtained the Job Trac  grant that allowed "her  precious Lodge" to become a  reality: a centre for the Arts,  Culture, Recreation and Learning for the entire community.  She worked tirelessly for the  Arts Council, representing the  Coast at the Arts Council of  B.C. functions, and held the  position of secretary for the  provincial council.  Her openness, wit and energy  will be sadly missed as will her  tireless efforts on behalf of  Rockwood Lodge.  Jam's Hendry  Students  missed  Editor:  Our Japanese students have  now returned home but they  will not be soon forgotten by  the people of the Sunshine  Coast. Their beautiful shy  smiles, their enthusiasm for  learning, and their loving nature  has left us all with wonderful  memories.  I wish to thank the host  families, the merchants and the  local newspapers for their support of this cultural exchange,  and it is my sincere hope that  this program will continue on  the Sunshine Coast.  Gail Sangster, Manager  Sechelt Information Booth  making the girls feel welcome  and happy made the program  the success it was. All of the  girls, and host families too, said  the visit was far too short.  Thanks to Mayor Diane  Slrom, Alderman Lilian  Kunstler, the Gibsons Yacht  Club members who look Ihem  oul on their yachts, Darcy  Burke, Ralph Jones, Ihe Commodore, and olher members  who attended the barbecue and  the Town of Gibsons who gave  monetary support along with  host families who provided  numerous salads and other  delicacies; thanks lo Skip, the  chef of the day, to the White  Tower Medieval Society who  welcomed Ihe girls and host  families at a demonstration of  archery, combat, a beggars banquet, and assisted the girls in  having their pictures taken on  horseback in medieval costume;  it was a beautiful day stepped  back in time to the 14th Century.  The Japanese girls had two  clay-long trips to Vancouver  -Stanley Park, Imax Theatre,  Granville Island and Queen  Elizabeth Park, Chinatown and  Ihe Pacific Centre for shopping.  They also had a day-long trip on  the Sunshine Coast - Port  Mellon, Ihe Museum, Sechelt  Indian Band Hall, Jolly Roger  and the Skookumchuk.  The host families took them  on trips, swimming al various  beaches on the coast, skiing at  Blackcomb, waler-skiing, dancing al the Legion and dinners  with one another's host family.

Coast News, August 22,1988  Seen of great value  Pender may get water taxi  Pender Harbour residents  may be able to take a water taxi  just about anywhere they want  to go in that area as soon as  September 5, the regional  district Planning Committee  heard last Thursday. Dennis  1 aBelle,   who  conceived  the  idea, made his presentation at  the committee's monthly  meeting in order to ascertain if  there would be any hold-ups  from the regional district in proceeding with his plan.  LaBelle,   who   operated   a  water taxi in the False Creek  Guess Where  the usual prize of $5 will be awarded Ihe first correct entry drawn  which locates the above.

Last week's win-  ; ner was Jean Werbicki, Box 253, Gibsons, who correctly identified  the cement silo at Port Mellon.  Water question  is debated  by Bruce Grierson  A Victoria consultant recommended that the water systems  of Granthams Landing, Hopk-  ings Landing, and Soames  Point, currently self-contained  and run by volunleers within the  improvement district, be incorporated into the Gibsons water  system if the municipality is  restructured.  The recommendation made  in a report prepared by consultant Tom Moore, was revealed  at the Gibsons Restructuring  Committee meeting held Tuesday in council chambers.  The point did not sit well with  the committee. Committee  member and Area E Director  Jim Gurney, called the scenario,  in which the assets of the improvement district would be  turned over to the municipality,  "not too workable."  Member and local realtor,  Jon McRae told the committee  that "if people want their own  water system, they should have  their own water system."  John Shaske, under whose  Area F jurisdiction the three improvement districts fall, said he  felt the scheme would eliminate  the high water quality and  reasonable water rates that  residents of the three areas now  enjoy.  "They have an awful lot of  assets to lose," said Shaske.  "Those people will pay a heck  of a lot more just because they  happen to be in Gibsons now."  McRae moved that a request  be included in the report to keep  but the motion was not supported.  Still wading through water  service recommendations, the  committee again stopped, this  time to consider that, under a  restructured municipality, the  burden of distributing water  would fall on the municipality.  "This demonstrates that Mr.  Moore has not done his  homework," said Gurney.  "Just as he hadn't with the  Sechelt sewer (recommendation)." Gurney said he felt  Moore had done less-than-  adequate background work  during Sechelt's restructuring  period, when he recommended  that the sewer treatment plant  be turned over to Sechelt, failing to realize the plant is part of  a larger system.  After restructure, a  municipality itself would  assume the role of approving  officer. This, explained McRae,  means that the municipality  "would lose the autonomy of a  separate body, one which is not  elected by the people."  According to Moore's report,  a restructure would also involve  a transfer of bylaws to the new  municipality, both from the  regional district and from the  former town of Gibsons.  Gurney said some planning  grants might be available  through the Municipal Affairs  ministry, adding thai Sechelt  had received a "substantial  melding grant" Io help cover its  bylaw   transfer   process.  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.  LOG  BUYING  STATION  sWawtllb*;  CLOSED  =until Tm��., S��pt. 6 =  ��� CEDAR ��� FIR ��� HEMLOCK ���  886-7033  area of Vancouver, said that he  felt the service would be well used in Pender Harbour and  would consist of two or three  radio-equipped vessels fulfilling  a taxi service in an area where  the road system makes driving a  short distance a long trip.  The average trip by water between points is 12 minutes, and  people, especially the elderly,  could be picked up and dropped  off at any private dock in the  area, allowing them to shop or  visit friends with an ease that  they don't get when they have to  drive.  School children may also  benefit from the service. In an  area where, LaBelle points out,  many of them spend up to forty  minutes each way on the school  bus, the water taxi could zip the  children from home to school  within 15 minutes.  Additionally, with the increasing number of pub applications in the area, LaBelle said,  this service, with its flexible  hours and easy access to the  marinas, would provide a safe  alternative to drinking and driving.  LaBelle wasn't asking the  planning committee for money.  He believes that the venture can  be self-supporting. His purpose  in presenting his plan to the  committee was simply to gain  information on possible  obstacles in getting the operation going. Regional directors  were enthusiastic in their  response and suggested that  Economic Development Officer  Bill Moore could assist LaBelle  in finalizing business plans.  They also suggested that the  Economic Development Commission would be interested in  hearing about his plans.  ADULT UPGRADING  Miss out on high school? Do you need  to review what you knew?
