 Sargeant's Bay Park ready for use  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  by Caryl Worden  The waterfront of the new provincial park at Sargeant's Bay is a recovered treasure for the Sunshine  Coast. (See adjacent story). -t'iryl wordm photo  For all its long, intricate  shoreline, the Sunshine Coast  has very few places where the  public can enjoy being by the  sea. A visitor from coastal Nova  Scotia was astonished that the  majority of waterfront property  here (and possibly throughout  BC) is privately owned. In her  home province, the opposite is  true, and residents fight to keep  it that way.  So when one bay is saved  from the sights of developers  and handed into public trust as  a provincial park, it is cause for  celebration. Such is the victory  gained by the Sargeant Bay  Society (SBS).  The SBS was borne out of  necessity in 1978 when plans for  a large-scale marina were  unveiled.  Residents  near the  bay, which is about two  kilometres along the Sechelt side  of Redrooffs, quickly rallied to  protect the foreshore at the  head of the bay and restore the  natural marsh that lies beyond  it.  In 11 years, the society has remained stalwart against such  development dreams as a condominium project and a high  density residential subdivision.  Going to one agency after  another for support to have the  land dedicated as parkland, the  society started to get positive  responses in 1986.  The Nature Trust of BC and  Ducks Unlimited expressed interest in preserving the marshland as a waterfowl habitat.  Then the provincial government  saw the area's potential as a  park, but negotiations with the  property owner took a further  two years to complete.  The new Sargeant Bay Provincial Park is 57 hectares,  which includes a 400-metre sand  and gravel beach, the marsh,  and forested uplands above  Redrooffs Road. A salmon-  bearing creek runs through one  side of the property; there is  also an arbutus covered rock  pinnacle which is an island al  high tide, but at low tide provides a perfect climbing  challenge. The uplands area is  criss-crossed with deer trails and  contains meadows that fill with  wildflowers in the summer.  The SBS can now put its  energy into plans to enhance the  natural habitat such as wetland  rehabilitation, hiking trail  development and, eventually,  participation in a nature interpretation centre.  The Sunshine  25' per copy on news stands  February 5,1990      Volume 44      Issue 6  Wood smoke seen  as health hazard  by Caryl Worden  Wood smoke is a pungent  symbol of rural living. But in  too large a quantity, it also  becomes a -potential health  hazard. Air quality on the Coast  has recently come under  scrutiny by the Sunshine Coast  Regional District's (SCRD) Environmental Task Force.  "There are three main  sources of burning," explained  Alderman Bob Graham, Sechelt  District's task force member, at  Friday's (Feb. 2) meeting.  "They are industrial, residential  and from land clearing."  Health Department Official  Bob Weston told the task force  that while it is known that  hydrocarbons are found in  wood smoke, the amount of  chlorinated hydrocarbons  (which   include   dioxin)  unknown. No air quality tests  have been conducted on the  Coast, except in the vicinity of  the Port Mellon mill.  The industrial component has  already addressed the issue.  Economic Development Officer  Bill Moore reported that wood  waste accounts for two-thirds of  the local smoke, especially in  the Howe Sound and Gibsons  areas. More than 100,000 tonnes of wood waste is burned  each year by local saw mills.  Since the wood is often wet, and  burnt in large piles in open pits,  there is a large volume of  smoke.  Earlier this year, a task force  comprised of Moore, members  of the Forest Advisory Committee, local operators and Environment Ministry officials  met to come up with alternatives to the present wood  Please tum to page 16  Provincial     Tyee '������t'uetun*  jmgdale Elementary School was one of the snow spots on the Coast lasl week and the school children  were quick to take advantage with a snow sculpture competition.

It seems only select areas were  included in last week's wintry  storm.  That's all because of 'cold air  pools' according to Environment Canada's weather office.  Snowfall is usually associated  with mountain tops. But in conditions like last week, where  cold air pools at low levels and  there's no wind to dislodge it,  valley bottoms were snowed in  while mountain tops got  downpours of rain.  Environment Canada figures  Howe Sound got at least 10 inches of the white stuff. Not  much compared to the rest of  Canada. However, it was  enough to cause some Port  Mellon mill employees to leave  their cars in the lot and hitch  rides with 4-wheel drive equipped co-workers.  It was also enough for some  Gibsons stores to postpone  deliveries, for Tyee Air to cancel  some flights, and for most  locals to eye the skies nervously  as they made their way home  early.  The weather office said there  was no way to predict who'd get  snow or how much because of  the many different elevation  ranges combined with the intricate coastline of coves and  bays.  The only sure things about  winter on the west coast are that  a) many drivers don't bother  with snow tires, and b) even  those with snow tires don't  know how to drive in the stuff.  program  queried  A Ministry of Environment  proposal call to regional  districts for "solid waste  recovery projects" or garbage  recycling, is "a classic case of a  provincial program being  tailored to downtown BC,"  SCRD Director Jim Gurney  said at Friday's Environmental  Task Force meeting.  In a letter received by the  SCRD, Ihe Ministry of the Environment said that recycling  programs would be evaluated  on 11 points, including curbside  separating and marketability.  "I don't know how this can  apply to rural areas," Gurney  said.  The task force tabled the letter until its next meeting when  representatives of the provincial  waste management branch will  be on hand to respond to  Gurney's recommendation.  Effective January 15. 1990, charter and schedule operations of Thunderblrd Air (1987) Inc. are being assumed by  Tyee Airways Limited.  Thunderblrd Air (1987) Inc. becomes the property acquisition and fleet leasing arm of Ihe associated companies.  A fleet maintenance facility now located on Sechelt Indian  land at Porpoise Bay, jointly owned by Tyee Airways Limited  and the Sechelt Indian Band, will operate under the corporate  name S.I.B. Aircraft Maintenance Inc.  The head offices of all corporations will be Sechelt, B.C.  with terminal facilities at the seaplane terminal in Nanalmo,  al the Trade Winds in Vancouver Harbour and at Porpoise  Bay, Sechelt.  SD#46 greets newteachers  by Rose Nicholson  At the January 23 school  board meeting, trustees  welcomed three new people to  the district. Cathy McGregor is  the new Primary Co-ordinator  and comes here from the North  West Territories.  Jenny Garrels and Robert  Chapman, who will be teaching  at Chatelech and Elphinstone,  are both from Australia and are  replacing Louise Guest-Bond  and Mike Denley on an exchange program.  McGregor will be working  with both teachers and parents  to implement Year 2000 plans in  the district. She is enthusiastic  about things that she is finding  here. "I really believe in the  Primary Program,' she told  trustees, "so it's a professional  honour to be part of implementing that."  McGregor is excited about  board goals, particularly the  team approach to decision making.  "I really do believe in the importance of meeting individual  student needs and the enhancement of self-esteem and we've  seen that here tonight with the  performance of the EFSL  students.  Garrels will be the librarian at  Chatelech during her stay here.  "The staff have really made me  feel welcome." she said. "I'm  looking forward to getting into  the job. My goal is to automate  the library while I'm here."  Chapman will be teaching industrial education at Elphinstone. "I'm very much a shop  man," he told trustees. "I left  school when 1 was 15 and have  done many things since then.  Hit and run  On February 1 at approximately 8 pm, Vancouver resident  Margaret E. Kovacs, aged 71, died titer being struck by a  vehicle while she was crossing the Port Mellon Highway near  the Langdale Ferry Terminal.  The vehicle left the scene and was located a short time later  by Gibsons RCMP. A 34-year-old Gibsons area male was arrested and charges are pending.

They have also seen the Minister of Agriculture in the  government of BC refuse to resign, with his premier's  blessing, after land owned by his family skyrocketed in  value as a result of cabinet decisions in which the minister  participated.  These are but the most recent examples of a sad  amorality at the core of Canadian politics. Both Prime  Minister Mulroney and Premier Vander Zalm have announced new and 'stringent' guidelines for the elected or  appointed official but neither has succeeded in stemming  the shameful parade of those in public office who are  manipulating or seem to be manipulating the public purse  to their own gain.  It is the opinion here that there is no more chronic  sadness in Canadian politics than the lack of honest  government by people who understand both honesty and  its longterm importance. The fault lies finally with the  electorate. If they are content to overlook the unending  sleaziness of public officials that sleaziness will continue.  To believe that honest government is possible is the first  step to having it. After we know it is possible we insist on  it. At present, we neither know, insist, or seem to care  much.  Gospel Rock  There is a growing sense of concern among the  residents of Gibsons about the development proposed  for the Gospel Rock area. The change of plans by  developer Haydn Killam has at least one taxpayer convinced that Killam intends to sidestep the park requirements so that he can build houses along the waterfront. (See page 3)  Gibsons Council has seemed somewhat equivocal so  far. Alderman Collins is concerned that the town not be  seen to be 'jerking developers around' and speaks feelingly about the need to increase the town's tax base.  His concern for Mr. Killam does him credit; his concern about the town's tax base heretofore has only been  evinced in his determination not to contribute to it.  All in all, spearheaded by Aldermen Collins and  Reynolds, Gibsons Council has shown recently a marked determination to overturn the opinions of its professional advisers, thereby indicating they have more confidence in themselves than seems to be shared by the  community. All of this contributes to the concerns now  being expressed about the future of Gospel Rock.  ant **��� coast m*r  5 YEARS AGO  Good news for Gibsons Council!

Now  write it all down and stretch  your memory to include when  and where you originally  bought each item and how  much you paid for it. The list  you end up with is just one  small piece in a puzzle called  Home Insurance Claims.  In January 1989, we lost  everything. A fire razed the  house and its contents. Two  days ago we submitted the final  piece of paper in our claim; it  took us a year to set up our lives  again. In the process we learned  a lot about how insurance  works, (as well as house construction and consumerism, but  that's for another day).  The only thought most people give to insurance is during  the initial decision on whether  or not to buy it, how much they  need, and then an annual grumble over the payments. If they  own some particularly valuable  possessions, like jewelry or  works of art, the policy may  have them itemized separately.  Well, here's a piece of advice  from someone who's just  mastered the art of lists: take  the time now to detail every one  of your belongings and avoid a  burdensome project in the wake  of disaster.  How many towels are in the  linen closet? Which books are  especially   memorable?   What  about children's toys? How  many extension cords are in the  house? What about desk supplies? Baking pans? Bathroom  needs?  The big stuff like furniture  and carpets are fairly easy to  remember. It's all those little  things, the staples of everyday  living, that get overlooked.  And it's astounding how ihey  add up when it comes lime to  replace them. Our claim for  cutlery alone came to over $400,  and we're talking mismatched  sets of stainless steel, not  registered sterling.  Which brings me to placing a  value on those belongings. A  claims form not only asks what  the item originally cost, but also  how much it would cost lo  replace it at today's value. We  spent a lot of time searching  through store catalogues to  come up with items of Mike kind  'and quality', the insurance company's criteria for replacerfient  values.  Then there's the 'depreciated  value' phase of the claim. Once  the detailed items/costs lists are  submitted, the company comes  back with a cash value amount.  For example, they'll take the  $150 replacement cost of a floor  lamp, depreciate it by 30 per  cent and give $105 cash. The  reductions ranged from zero for  plants, to 50 per cent on socks.  (Apparently the rate depends  on, among other things, the age  of the item).  When a new lamp is bought,  the company will pay to the  maximum $150 which was  originally submitted; they'll give  the difference between the  replacement cost and the cash  value assessed. Providing they  gel a receipt as proof of purchase. If the lamp doesn't gel  replaced, the cash value stands.  Of course there are some  things that are beyond value.  Family photographs, self-  recorded music tapes, heirloom  antiques or mementos from  travelling.  It's best not to linger on those  belongings of the heart.  Although one saving grace,  especially for photos, computer  disks and important papers,  would be to have them in a  metal filing cabinet, or better  yet in a bank safety deposit box.  If itemizing every personal  possession is too large a project  to consider, even photos or a  video of the interior of the  house would be a help to jar the  memory.  Aside from all the trials of  replacing our worldly goods,  our insurance experience was  fine. People had warned us of  the horrors, the battles we'd  have to wage io get our just  desserts.  None of thai happened.  From the pouring of the cement  for the foundation of the new  house, to filling the last kitchen  cupboard with dishes, the process was smooth. A lot of work,  yes. But this time, we'll be much  more prepared.  Sea Love  Tide be ruititin' the great world over:  'Twos only lasl June month I mind thai we  Was thinkin' Ihe toss ami the call in the breast of the lover  So everlaslin' as the sea.  Here's the same little fishes that sputter and swim,  Wi' the moon's old glim on the gray, wet sand;  An' him no more to me nor me to him  Than the wind going' over my hand.  Charlotte Mew  Down from the mountain  Making room for fellow residents  by Sam Moses  I think that people on the  Sunshine Coast as well as other  areas that border on the wild  should have respect for the  wildlife. If someone has recently  moved into an area that has  been claimed from the woods  and are having troubles with a  resident animal, before loading  a rifle they should stop and consider...who was there first?  Although some of us are not  willing to admit it, we are the  same as the creatures of the  forest in that we are all animals.  Obviously we are a little further up Ihe ladder and so with  regards lo battles over such  things as territorial rights, we  the higher evolved win. But do  we have to win by taking the life  of a fellow lifeform who's only  crime is that he was protecting  what he instinctually sensed was  his?  Larger animals of the wild  usually respect one's territory  whether it be another wild  animal's or the human animal,  if they don't there's usually a  reason although it might not  always be apparent. There are  some animals that have territories but they have a habit of  straying over the boundaries at  times, and should they find  grass that is greener on the other  side, they may even forget the  boundaries ever existed.  One such animal I've had to  deal with as have no doubt a lot  of other people on the Coast, is  just such a rebel. In fact if you  look up the word 'ornery' in  some dictionaries in place of a  definition you might even find  his picture. He is a member of  the Mutelidae family and his  scientific name is Spilogale  Putorius, in southern climate  he's often called a polecat.  Locally he has a variety of  names which vary depending on  what he's been up to, bul  generally he's referred to as  Civet Cat or if you haven't  guessed it by now...the spotted  skunk!  If you have moved onto land  recently claimed from the wild  and have a problem with  skunks, it is quite possible lhal  they had a den there prior to  your arrival. I found myself in  just such a situation up on the  mountain, and seeing that I had  a domestic cat who's diet was  the same as the civet cat's (mice,  etc.), I knew eventually trouble  would brew.  What was more, this little  four-legged scent gland had  taken to coming in my cat's  door and helping himself to dry  cat food. At first I thought  about doing him in, especially  when he couldn't fight fair with  my cat and had to resort to  chemical warfare right beneath  the   floor   boards.   Then   I  discovered that there was a pair  (male and female) and they had  a den about 150 feet outside my  back door.  Realizing that I was in fact  the intruder, I went about solving the problem peacefully by  constructing a live trap.  I used materials I had at  hand, namely a one gallon coal-  oil can, some tin, string, one  common nail, four stove-bolts  and last but not least, dry cat  food as bait. I set it up just inside the cabin door one night  (skunks are nocturnal) with a  trail of cat food leading into it,  the last piece of which was attached to the trigger. The male,  who was always first, came  right in the door and followed  the line of food into the trap as  my cat and I watched from the  loft. He wasn't particularly  bright.  Nor was I for that matter, for  I forgot to put a catch on the  trap's door. Using a broom  handle I put the trap outside until the following day, at which  time I found it empty. Correcting my mistake I reset the trap  that night and caught him with  even more ease than the night  before.  The next day I transported  skunk number one to his new  location, half of the way on the  end of the broomstick like some  unexploded bomb until 1 realized he wasn't going to let fly in  close quarters, and dispensed  with ihe broom.  The female was nowhere as  easy to trap as the male, for she  found a way to trip the trap and  yet not get caught. I had to add  the length of another coal-oil  can to the trap, and some two  weeks later she was caught and  on her way to meet her mate. 1  set the trap down and sliding the  door open I stood back and  waited for her to come out,  when she did she shot out like a  bullet, did a U-turn and headed  right for me!  At first I thought she was going to have the final say on the  whole business, but she was  temporarily blinded by the  direct sunlight and ran right  pasl me. As I stood there watching her run into the underbrush hoping she would find her  mate, of one thing 1 was sure...  I had done the right thing and  felt better for it.  Though a peaceful conclusion might not always be the  outcome between us and  animals of the wild when it  comes to the matter of territory,  I like to think that because we  think, it will favour toward a  peaceful end.  Even that strange little  creature with the distinctive  body odour and reputation for  being 'ornery' has rights among  the living.  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper Letters to the Editor    )  Coast News, February 5,1990  A fresh quality  Wilson asked to speak up fearlessly  Editor:  In your last issue of the Coast  News, Gordon Wilson a.k.a.  Flipper Wilson in some circles,  where he states he was the first  one to stand up and fearlessly  speak up on many subjects.  Now Gordon forgot to men-  lion a number of important  things that he was first to stand  up and speak out fearlessly (his  term) on namely Farrington  Cove.  He was the first lo stand up  and demand that the regional  board change the by-laws to  make the biggest land flip in  Pender Harbour possible.  He was the first to put the  owner and his agent on the  APC. Ir. this way the owner used Gordon to get what he  wanted, about a million bucks  clear.  Gordon was the first to stand  up and tell of all the jobs that  would be created if the by-laws  were changed, they were. Now  Gordon can stand up and tell  what happend to those jobs.  He could also stand up and  tell us why he held the hearing  on Farrington Cove in Sechelt  instead of Garden Bay. What  happened to his democratic  principles?  Gordon would have us  believe we would have no ferry  service if it wasn't for him. Nor  a library in Pender Harbour.  Howard White was the first to  request the old forestry building  be turned over for community  use. Gordon would have us  believe that Pender Harbour  would disappear off the map if  it were not for him.  He claims credit for calling  for a Clean Air Act, undoubtedly he's an authority on  air; the Hot Air variety.  Gordon Wismer, when he  was Attorney General some 40  years ago when the collation of  Grits and Tories split up under  Boss Johnson, told me that the  Liberals would be washed up  for at least a decade, maybe for  all time. He sure called the shot  on that one. I don't think Gordon will change it either.  If by any remote chance he  was to gain power in the next  election, and his much counted  wisdom used on Farrington  Cove was applied to BC, it  would be a pretty bleak future.  Gordon tells us of his courage  to stand up alone, now he has a  chance to prove it, by standing  up (alone) and telling us why he  put the owner and his agenl on  the APC.  Have you got the courage to  give us your long-awaited explanation, Gordon?  W. White  Madeira Park  Editor:  My husband and I have only  been in Gibsons since May of  last year. Both of us enjoy  reading the Coast News. We  find that it has a 'fresh' quality  in its reporting of local issues,  and it is informative. I would  like to add an extra thank you  to George Cooper, for suggesting where a person might  get some relief from 'junk  mail'.  I have written to the Canadian Direct Marketing Association and I shall pass the address  on.  Linda K. Pureed  Chief Paul praises community spirit  Editor's Note: Following open  letter to the members of the  Sechelt Indian Band community  has been received for publication.  To The People of Sechelt  Elections are here once again  and looking at the number of  nominees that you have  selected promises a very interesting result. In all we have  14 candidates, the most we've  ever had running in any band  election.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you one and  all for your patience, cooperation and support. And at this  time, I would also like to thank  my present council for all their  endeavours with the positions  they've had to maintain for the  last three years.  The process of politics is  never an easy job for anyone.  Individuals have to learn to take  what comes with the job and  this includes sometimes anger,  frustrations, patience, hope, but  most of all, understanding. This  not only applies to our people  but to the outside society as  well.  In the last three years, council  has had to deal with many dif  ficult challenges, both on the  SIB level and government level.  At times it has proven extremely  strenuous and especially for  those times I commend our present council.  They have carried out their  tasks to the best of their individual abilities. I would like to  stress that with 'group effort',  council has dealt on the governmental level with much ease and  confidence. This has proven to  be extremely successful in  achieving our goals.  In order to be completely successful, we must always  remember lo combine our present works and efforts with the  best taken from our past chiefs  and council members. With this  knowledge in mind, we will  surely endeavour to build a better future for our children and  future generations to come.  This has always been the vision of our former leaders such  as the late Charles Craigan Sr.,  Ted Dixon, Henrey Paull,  Clarence Joe Sr. and Ernie Joe,  to name a few.  Unfortunately, some people  take it upon themselves to claim  to be the only one responsible  for all the good things this band  Concern expressed  for Gospel Rock  Editor:  I would like to support and  encourage the mayor and councillors and the planner of the  Town of Gibsons in their efforts  to secure the Gospel Rock area  for all people wherever they  may live.  There are approximately 78  acres in this development and  under the Municipal Act, the  developer is bound to designate  five per cent of the land for  park area. Five per cent of 78  acres is 3.9 acres, almost the  total area of Gospel Rock at the  present time.  On January 21 Mr. Killam  came to our house and unveiled  his plan for development. The  plan showed nine houses between the Town of Gibsons and  Gospel Rock on the east side  and eight houses between  Gospel Rock and the A-frame  on Gower Point Road on the  west side. All of these houses  are designated to be built on the  waterfront.  At the information meeting  on January 23, the developer  withdrew this portion of his  plan and said he now intends to  divide the property into two  parcels; one parcel containing  Gospel Rock and the bluff to  the north; and the other parcel  containing the larger piece of  land to the north and west of  the bluff.  When ihe developer applies  for development of the larger  piece of property to the north,  being all of Block 6 and part of  Block 7, he will not at that time  have to dedicate park area.  My fear is that, at that point,  he could either sell the remaining Gospel Rock and bluff area  or he could apply to build the  same houses along the waterfront and, through some loophole in the by-laws, manage to  get away with little if any park  dedication.  Dividing the land into two  parcels provides a means of  moving around certain provisions in the Municipal Act for  park dedication. I am sure the  developer fully intends to build  those houses along the waterfront when the time is right.  I would encourage everyone  to write to the mayor and council and support them in their efforts to preserve Gospel Rock.  Once we lose Gospel Rock to  developers, we lose it forever.

Chief Thomas Paul  X  Ratepayer requests  participation  Editor:  As a member of the Pender  Harbour Ratepayers' Association and a relatively new resident of the area, I'm happy to  see that this community is not  that unlike most other semi-  rural areas of Canada. That is,  we spend an inordinate amount  of time on our B and B culture.  This does not mean Bil-  ingualism and Bi-culturalism,  but Bitching and Bickering. No  matter what the issue, whether  it be the town dump, or the  school hot dog sale, we find  reasons to sit around and take  our best shots.  Now, this is not necessarily a  negative attitude toward solving  problems, but rather a uniquely  Canadian method of curing a  variety of ills.  Such is the case in our area  when it comes lo planning for  Ihe future, whether it be a new  housing development, a marina,  or a zoning by-law. The process  automatically starts on a B and  B basis.  Unfortunately, some of the  conclusions drawn by this process involve too few people in  the community. That is, a small  Former  resident  suggests  names  Editor:  I refer to letter to the Editor  in your paper dated January 15,  1990 written by Linda Moseley,  Name Park Now.  I wish to make a correction to  this letter. Arnold (Chuck)  Winegarden never owned waterfront property at Gibsons. He  and his wife Emma (Gibson)  Winegarden lived for a number  of years in the original Gibsons  home as caretakers of the property.  The Winegarden property  was at the top of the (Old Road)  now known as School Road,  and Ted Winegarden still  resides on part of that property.  Why Winegarden Park? Why  not McCombie Park, an early  settler who married Hattie Gibson whose daughter Enslie now  in her 95th year resides here on  Vancouver Island.  Better still why not Hyde  Park, quite appropriate. Arthur  Hyde was engaged to Mary Emma Gibson but died of small  pox. He brought the disease to  the early settlement of Gibsons.  He was the only one who died  of the disease and is buried in  the Gibson family plot in Gibsons. He is the only one not  related to the founding father  buried in the plot. Emma later  married Arnold Winegarden.  1 was born in Gibsons over 68  years ago and have kept interest  in the development of the town  and area. I am sure there are  many worthy names that could  be put forth for consideration  for a name for the new park  site.  F. Ross Gibson  Victoria, BC  group decides that they either  know best or are speaking for  the whole community. Without  getting into local gossip, there is  a perception that our local  ratepayers' association is going  down this road.  To clear the air, it might be  worthwhile for the president of  the association, Mr. Joe Harrison, to call a membership  meeting in the near future so  that we can all Bitch and Bicker  together.

It was noted at the meeting  that Drop-in Centres had tried  to become established in the  past and often ran into  obstacles that could nol be overcome.  The group agreed lhat in  order to become operational the  most obvious obstacles were  funding and facilities. It was  unanimously decided that those  problems needed to be tackled  first.  Committees were formed  with specific agendas to attend  to understanding we would  meet again on February 12 in  the cafeteria of Elphinstone at 7  pm.  We would like to welcome  further participation from the  community.

The event will raise funds for  the band of the RC Palmer  Junior High in Richmond to go  to Honolulu to compete in the  Pacific Basin Festival in March  of this year.  Bands have been invited from  Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong,  New Zealand, Australia and the  US to compete in this festival  for top international honours.  David tells us that his jazz  and concert bands received National Festival invitations to  compete following every event  they entered in 1989.  As well as heading the music  staff in RC Palmer, David is a  professional performer and  composer/producer in video  productions for many large corporations. One of his videos is  an anti-alcohol rock theme.  And he has done keyboard in  Vancouver's Theatre Under the  Stars productions.  After graduating with a  Bachelor of Music at UBC in  1977, David worked at various  jobs before he returned to UBC  to take teacher training. And he  has been at RC Palmer since  then. He has taken advanced  credit courses in computer  music and applications of sound  in film and video at both UBC  and Simon Fraser.  At present he has his own  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  commercial music company,  Omnitrax, which specializes in  film, video and jingle productions.  Many will remember David  when he was a student here,  especially those who were  members with him of Backwoods Brass and of Tangerine.  Too young to play at liquor  licensed events the group could  provide the music for AA  socials. Another student musician in the group was Roland  Kerbis for whom a memorial  bursary is offered annually at  Elphinstone.  David's grandmother, Mrs.  Aletta Gilker, says he was her  pupil in piano and theory  throughout his school years until he went to UBC. And he did  return several times to enter the  Sunshine Coast Music Festival  which his grandmother and  Mrs. Mary Brooke had initiated  and sponsored for many years.  Besides piano, the saxophone  was an instrument David played  at the festival, an instrument he  favours.  His mother, Mrs. Diane  Frontager, tells us that David  was given a souvenir bit of the  school piano destroyed in the  fire just at the end of the 1973  school year.  Tickets for the February 26  concert are available at  the  Gateway Theatre box office,  270-1812.

KEATS FARMER  George Koning, of whom a  sketch appeared in this news  corner last week, may not yet  have seen the sketch and his  photo with Annie the Belgian  mare. He has taken a long route  home via Lions Gate Hospital.  Accidentally knocked into the  saltchuck at the Dogwood  Princess moorage in Langdale a  week ago today, George said he  dropped the 10 to 12 feel to the  bottom. "I could feel my feet  touch before 1 came up," he  said from his hospital bed. "1  could see daylight through the  water and knew which way to  go."  He hung on at the dock until  he was hauled out. "All my  clothes had to be cut off - lost a  good jacket. Took almost three  hours for me lo gel warm. And  when they moved me, I knew  my hip was gone."  X-rays at St. Mary's Hospital  confirmed this and next morning George was transferred to  Lions Gate Hospital. The result  is a new hip replacement, and  by Friday he felt just fine.  In fact he said, "They gave  me the former artificial ball  from the joint for a souvenir.  Think I'll make a door knocker  out of it."  Meanwhile neighbours tend  his livestock - cattle and rabbits  on the old Corkum farm, the  Border collie and the cat and  Annie the Belgian mare at his  nearby residence. Bless kindly  neighbours.

Some  pests are downright ugly. There  is one pest that is very prevalent  in Roberts Creek and the rest of  the world except Australia. He  is very ugly and is one that  nobody wants to talk about or  even acknowledge that they  have. He is, of course, the common rat.  There are more rats in New  York city than there are people.  Rats have wiped out more than  their share of crops and spread  dread diseases with their mites  and fleas.  If you have a compost,  chicken coop, or as a lot of  houses in this area have no proper cement foundation, then  you are sure to have rats. If you  see one, then there are at least  20 more. They can get enormous and as we all know are  very prolific.  Just remember when you are  laying out that poison or trap,  please be careful where you put  it: Most other animals and birds  will not touch the stuff or will  get sick right away to rid  themselves of any contaminated  food. But it still could happen  that you could poison a dog,  cat, birds or even racoons.  The best place and way to  leave out poison is in a spot  where the rats are frequenting in  a two inch pipe under some  other debris. Rats like to crawl  into pipes or hidey holes and  this will keep birds and other  larger animals from getting to  the poison.  There are also a lot of cute  pests out there. Some wild,  some that have been pets and  are soon ignored and eat too  much. One of these is the rabbit.  If you can no longer keep it  caged or penned for whatever  your reasons, give it to someone  who will, or to someone who  has a purpose for them other  than as an unwanted pet.  , When you let rabbits free,  they do untold damage to  everyone's gardens and flowers.  It is not being nice to them, it is  cruel. They are left to find their  own greens, are often hunted  arid killed by dogs, shot at, and  can suffer a painful death.  Another cute pest I've encountered in Roberts Creek is  the Western Spotted Skunk,  also known locally as the Civet  Cat. They really like to hang  around if they like you and your  stuff. At least when they let  loose some of their perfume, its  not as bad as their bigger  cousin's. But it is un-  mistakeable.  One morning when still half  asleep not having had coffee  yet, 1 had to empty the garbage.  It so happens I had a bag of  some stuff in each arm. So  down the stairs and out the  door, but the lid on the garbage  can wasn't quite on right.  I didn't think anything of it,  as this was quite often the case.  When I kicked it off with my  knee and was about to drop the  first bag into the can, I looked  just in time to see a little Civet  Cat sitting calmly in the bottom  of the can. He was eating a  piece of something, holding it  between his two little hands.  He was so cute. His back was  covered with symmetrical little  white spots, spreading across  him. He was so tiny and totally  unafraid of the lid opening. He  must have crawled in somehow  and slid down into the tin  without knocking the lid right  off. What a shock that was. I,  instinctively dropped both bags  and backed off.  That Civet decided to spend  the day in there. He just wasn't  ready to come out yet. Finally  when 1 dumped the can over, he  still wasn't ready. But by this  time he decided to give me a  shot of perfume. It was pretty  bad. Later in the day I spotted  him slowly sauntering out, I  guess after he had finished his  meal. Off into the bushes he  trotted with his beautiful fluffy  tail wagging along behind.  More pests next week.  VALDY VALENTINE  Valdy is returning. He and  the Nick of Time Band will be  performing at the Roberts  Creek Community Hall February 14 (Valentine's Day) at 8  pm.

Tickets are now on sale for  Saturday and Sunday, March  24 and 25 from Books & Stuff,  Talewind Books, Strings 'n  Things as well as from Len  Herder and myself. The usual  presentation of local talented  artists which Nikki manages for  the enjoyment of her audiences,  will be on hand.  Proceeds of both concerts  will go to the Branch 69  Building Fund. Mark these  dates on your calendar now and  please pick up your tickets early.  MEDICAL PAYMENTS  Some time ago in one of my  columns I mentioned the  possibility some of our  members could be and probably  were, paying excessive premiums to trie plan simply because  the plan was billing them for  X-number of dollars per month.  It should be borne in mind  payments to the plan are  governed by the 'Adjusted Net  Income' (line 236 of your 1988  income tax return) of the individual member of the plan.  As an example, the full  premium for a single person is  $31 per month. That premium  is for those fortunate people  with an adjusted net income of  over $17,000 per year. In the  event the same single person has  an adjusted net income of  $15,000.01 to $17,000. he or she  is entitled to a 15 per cent  premium assistance which  lowers the monthly payment to  $26.35.  In the same vein, an adjusted  net income between $13,000.01  and $15,000. should pay $20.15,  between $11,000.01 and  $13,000. payment should be  $13.95 per month, and adjusted  net  income of $9,000.01  to  $11,000. should be $7.75 per  month.  From these statistics, if you  fed your premiums should be  adjusted, your government,  agent in Teredo Square can supply the necessary forms and  from past experience, has proven more than helpful in such  matters. Good luck!  MEMBERSHIP  January proved to be a banner month for Branch 69 in that  over 300 members were reported to have signed up.  Those of you who were  members in 1989 are reminded  your membership has expired  and should be renewed by contacting either Kay Mackenzie at  885-3184, Flora Gardiner at  885-5338 or Gerry Chailler at  886-3728.

STOLEN DONATIONS  It makes me heartsick to  think that anyone would steal  the donations that were made so  generously to the Cystic Fibrosis  Fund at Christmastime. But someone did and we have to accept that and go on. I can only  imagine what a disappointment  this action caused Elva Dinn in  her great effort on her granddaughter Laura's behalf.  The ever-generous spirit of  Sechelt and the community will  Trail Bay Mall  plans expansion  by Caryl Worden  Shoppers at Trail Bay Mall in  Sechelt will notice some major  changes in the coming weeks, as  Trail Bay Developments (TBD)  begins an expansion.  After months of rumours in  the community, TBD confirmed last week that it will add 5000  square feet to the existing mall,  on the Cowrie Street side. "We  expect the project to be completed by July, with a cost in the  range of about $200,000," TBD  Controller Bruce Morris told  the Coast News.  The addition will replace 13  parking spaces, narrowing the  mall's Cowrie Street parking lot  to a standard width. Pharmasave, Sew Easy and Mitten  Realty will then expand their  spaces and Sunshine Coast Insurance Agencies will also take  over part of the new area.  Within the mall will be other  changes, as Radio Shack takes  over part of Trail Bay Hardware, which is reducing its size,  and two new tenants move into  the old Radio Shack and Insurance Agency spots. Morris  could not confirm who the new  tenants would be at press time.  This year marks a host of anniversaries for Trail Bay. It is  the 20th anniversary of the  mall, the 40th for the Shop Easy  store, the 70th anniversary of  the arrival to the Sunshine  Coast of Shop Easy's founder,  Edric Clayton and the 100th anniversary of the pioneering  retailer's birth. The mall was  last expanded in 1979.  '""���' IJIIMIIIIWl  ESZZZ  The  SYLVIA  Hotel  Make the Sylvia part  of your Vancouver adventure...

A seawalk  by Lauralee SolHc   885-3510  Some replies to my question  about a seawalk.  "A seawalk between Davis  Bay and Sechelt would be  wonderful. This would be a very  substantial walk for us as we do  enjoy walking. Naturally it is  one of the best exercises and we  should be able to indulge  ourselves. At the moment it is  very dangerous especially with  the mentality of the drivers today. I do drive but prefer to  walk. A seawalk would certainly lessen the traffic on the  highway." The Copelands.  From Mr. Johnson "What a  wonderful idea - a seawalk from  Davis Bay to Sechelt! Not only  would we seniors enjoy the walk  away from the increasing traffic  fumes, and noise, but would  make a great tourist drawing  card. The beauty of our  coastline could be enjoyed by  all, and 1 for one would be willing to pay more taxes for the  privilege of the walk."  Others were also for it but  with comments about the cost,  and would it be feasible?  KIRKLAND CENTRE  Their antique organ has  found a good home, the Living  Faith Lutheran Church.

February 5,1990  Help sought for  Celebration Days  AUSTRALIA TRAVEL SHOW  Feb. 11, 2 pm, Bella Beach Motel, Davis Bay  It's easier going down than up. Maureen and David Foss labour  to set the mail boxes upright in the Redrooffs Road area. Vandalism of mail boxes is a continuing problem.  -Ruth t'ormttr phoio  Halfmoon B;ty Happenings  Remembering Jack Mercer  by Rose Nicholson  A group of representatives  from several community groups  got together last week in Sechelt  to discuss plans for this summer's Celebration Days.  Last year the event was run  by the Senior Citizen's Association but that group does not  plan to carry on this year.  Discussion at last week's  meeting centered on the need  for some sort of a permanent  association that would be  responsible for organizing the  event on an on-going basis.  "People seem to want  Celebration Days to continue,"  said Ev Siemans, the representative from Rockwood Centre.  by Ruth Forrester   885-2418  Lasl week's notification of  the death of Jack Mercer allowed no time for comment, other  than stating the fact of his sudden passing. 1 would like this  week to take the opportunity to  express heartfelt sympathy to  our good friend Jeannie Mercer  and to all the members of the  family.  It musl have been quite a  comfort lo them to see the Baptist Church overflowing wilh  friends who cared for Jack,  sharing a warm and moving service.  Art McPhee spoke on behalf  of the family, recalling happy  years Jack and Jeannie spent  raising their family of five sons  and one daughter. In honour of  Jack's years of service with the  Royal Canadian Navy, the  casket was draped with the  white ensign Hag which was  presented to his widow.  Jack was a good, honest, decent man who was respected  and loved by all who knew him.  With dedication and hard work  he made a successful business of  The Buccaneer Marina which he  purchased in 1968.  In the past 20 years he  answered many distress calls  when he served on the Coast  Guard as a volunteer in this  essential service.  Family members have taken  over the business, but will miss  their Father's advice and expertise.  We will all miss Jack.  WHAT'S THE POINT?  We can't help but wonder  how some folks get their jollies.  Where is the joy in deliberately  knocking over the green mail  boxes on Redrooffs or  anywhere else?  The ones who pay the price  are the couple who deliver the  mail into the boxes, Maureen  and Dave Foss. These people  are doing an honest day's work  which is demanding enough  without having to heave and  haul those heavy metal boxes.  This is above and beyond the  call of duty, but if they didn't  do this we would receive soaking wet mail.  So, our thanks to the Fosses  for taking the trouble, and bad  cess lo those responsible for this  stupidity.  AUSTRALIAN INVASION  "The house is alive, with the  sound of children." This can be  said of Gerry and Hazel Ber-  thelet's home on Redrooffs  since the arrival from Australia  of their daughter Stephanie and  her three small children. These  kids have strong Australian accents at the moment, but it  won't take long for that to be  replaced by Canadian accents.  Yes - you do have such a thing!  Stephanie would like the  children to get together wilh  other wee ones and wonders if  there is such a thing as volunteer  day care in the area. She of  course would be willing to help  out and share in the caring. If  you know of anyone or would  like to discuss the possibility  give Stephanie a call at  885-5772.  FUN DAYS  Thursdays are fun days for  Halfmoon Bay School students.  The Grades 1 to 3 go skating at  the arena while the bigger guys  get to ski on Grouse Mountain.  All this week there is a sale of  beautiful books for children at  very reasonable prices at the  Halfmoon Bay School library.  They will be available between 8  am and 3 pm.  HOSPITAL AUXILIARY  A reminder that the monthly  meeting of the Halfmoon Bay  branch of St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliary is next Monday,  February 12 in the Welcome  Beach Hall al 10 am.  SYMPHONY TRIP  If anyone in Halfmoon Bay  would like to take in a symphony concert in Vancouver call  883-2549. The Pender Harbour  Music Society are sponsoring a  bus for the concert by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra  with piano soloist Andrea Luc-  chesini on February 16. Bus will  leave from Madeira Park and  can pick you up along the way.  REMEMBERED  A funeral service was held in  Medicine Hat, Alberta on  Thursday, February 1 for  Galvin Desharnias.  As owner of the Jolly Roger  Inn, he had many friends on the  Sunshine Coast who will be sad  to learn of his passing.  Roberts Creek Library  receives a benefit  The Coasl News has learned this week that the Roberts  Creek Library has received a generous donation from the  Estate of Oliver Bray of Gibsons.  A library spokesman had the cheque for $1000 in her hands  on Friday, February 2 of last week. The library will also be  receiving a provincial government grant of $5100 in June of  this year.  A reminder that library hours are Tuesdays from 6 to 9  pm, Thursdays from 3 to 7 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to  I pm. Memberships for a year are only $3, this being single or  family. The library is well stocked this year and a $3 membership is certainly a good deal.  "It's just a matter of finding  enough people who want to do  the work."  Another meeting is planned  for February 12 at 7:30 pm at  the Sechelt Municipal Hall.  "This is not to be a closed  meeting," stressed Siemans.  "We hope as many interested  people as possible turn out to  plan and discuss the event."  Breakaway  Centre  finds home  by Rose Nicholson  Breakaway, the drug and  alcohol abuse treatment program for teens, has found a  home. The new quarters will be  next to the Alano Club in Gibsons. Plans are to have a program going by the beginning of  May.  The group has hired a program director and expects the  centre will be open six days a  week with a variety of activities  and counselling services offered.  Danny Highley, who has  been the program director of  Breakaway in Penticton for  three years, will spend the first  month here to help the local  group get started.  Breakaway is based on the  concept that the most effective  counsellor in any drug and  alcohol abuse treatment program for teens is a young person  who has been addicted and who  has kicked the habit. Their  method is loosely based on  Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)  but adapted to young people.  They do not seek government  grants, but rely on support and  funding from parents and the  community. The local group is  made up of an enthusiastic and  hard working group of parents  and young people who have so  far raised $5000 for their centre.  They need another $15,000  before they can open in May,  "and yes" said April  Mackenzie-Moore, "we do expect to have that much by the  end of April."

Egmont  News  Snowtime  by Dixie Percy   883-9206  One neat thing about living  on the Coast in winter is you  never know what kind of winter  it's going to be. This one is sure  to go down in the books as a  wet one. And a snowy one.  I've been buried in snow out  here in Mission, believe me, I've  been building snowmen and  shovelling the driveway all  week, oh well, it's good exercise. But I wouldn't want to  make a sport of it.  Egmont has sent more than  its fair share of patients to St.  Mary's in the past few weeks  and this week Dolly Wallace is  in hospital. Hope she's back on  her feet soon.  Please save your old books or  magazines and donate them to  the Egmont Community School  Library. Also, while you're in  the saving mode, hang on to  returnable bottles and cans for  an upcoming bottle/can drive.  There will be a Baby Clinic  on Feb. 8 and 22nd.

David Orr's wife and two  sons will join him in Pender  Harbour after the school term  ends in Toronto.  STRUCK IT RICH  Cheryl Jensen is the lucky  winner of the $537 first prize in  the Pender Harbour Senior  Secondary 'Strike it Rich' contest.  Proceeds from the contest  will go to the high school's 1990  graduation fund.  SOME PEOPLE...  Will go to any length to avoid  celebrating a milestone birthday  in Pender Harbour (and becoming a target). This month's, if  not this year's, prize goes to  Mary Cochet, who went all the  way to Hawaii to get away from  those terrible 'Lordy, lordy,  guess who's...' signs.  CORRECTION  Mervin Reid was not on  board his boat when fire broke  out in the cabin. He was at  home having lunch and found  out about the fire when the  wharfinger telephoned him  there.  The cabin was not destroyed,  although the interior of it was  considerably damaged.  SYMPHONY SEATS  Only a few seats are left for  the February 16 bus trip to the  Orpheum, sponsored by the  Pender Harbour Music Society.

If you would like a service or  organization listed in this community club publication, call  Willa Schroeder and by the  way, there is no charge for your  listing.  BAD NEWS  There have been a rash of  thefts lately in Pender Harbour  and although it's unknown if  they are related, there doesn't  seem to be any common factor  among the items stolen.  A common thread seems to  be most of the people who have  been robbed feel they have been  hit by someone they know, even  someone who they thought was  a (trusted) friend.  A couple of weeks ago my  stamp collection disappeared  from my home. No, my doors  were not locked. Yes, I think it  was someone who knew me and  someone I trusted.  The message here is, don't  take chances with any  valuables. Protect them and insure them. If you have  neighbours, pay a bit more attention to who comes and goes  from their place when they're  not home. Be cautious about  good deals on secondhand  goods.  If the thief or thieves are  members of the community,  and this looks like the case, people in the community have the  best chance of doing something  about it. Watch and listen.

Wllbert Fair  SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC WORKS  King off the Safecrackers  The desperate years  by Peter Trower  / spent three years Ihe  hard way at Kingston  There was no other way lo  do time al that Pen  Kingston urn Ihe Devil's Island  of North America  Old-school discipline was  the rule  Thecal o'nine tails  was king  Il did little lo make  me think  Of a straight and heller life...  Herbert Emerson Wilson  Once again Ihe doors of a  penitentiary are opening to  receive Herb Wilson after only a  few brief months of freedom.  He had entered San Quentin in  a resigned frame of mind,  knowing lhat he had brought  the whole debacle upon himself.  This situation is an entirely different mailer, however, Wilson  has been blatantly railroaded  -and he is well aware of the fact.  Holliday and Patterson have  also been found guilty and given  Pen sentences but - as supposed  secondary culprits - their terms  are several years less than his  own. The injustice of it all,  rankles Wilson beyond words.  He enters Kingston Peninten-  tiary with a decidedly bad attitude, full of hate for Donald  Holliday, his eloquent prosecutor, his drunken inept  lawyer and the Canadian  judicial system.  Kingston Penintentiary is not  the sort of place in which to exhibit a bad attitude. Reform-  minded San Quentin is a summer resort by comparison.  Kingston, like most Canadian  penitentiaries of the time, has  small interest in rehabilitation.  Its Calvinistic purpose is to  punish, degrade and ultimately  break law-breakers. These func  tions are carried out with  unyielding efficiency. Discipline  is maintained by liberal use of  the paddle and the lash. The  rules are many - and stringently  enforced. Such an amorphous  infractions as 'dumb insolence'  or looking defiantly at a guard,  can be ground for corporal  punishment.  Full of disgruiil lenient and ill  will, Herb Wilson is ushered  without ceremony into this  malignant environment. He  submits to the demeaning ritual  of being disinfected and having  his head shaved bald, keeping  his seething emotions in check.  Reduced lo a convict again,  Wilson is brought before Ihe  warden, a purse-lipped portly  man wilh cruel eyes. "Wc have  studied your record," he says  meaningfully. "Because of your  San Quentin experience, I am  assigning you as an orderly to  ihe prison hospital. But you  may expect no special privileges.  I warn you to obey the rules implicitly. The consequences of  nol doing so can be extremely  unpleasant."  Herb Wilson mutters  something in the affirmative.  The warden is obviously a hardline martinet of the most-  unbending sort. Wilson, despite  his inner turmoil, has no desire  lo start out on the wrong foot  with him. There is little point in  making things any worse than  they already are.  Toronto's Don Jail has been  unpleasant enough but  Kingston Penintentiary is  positively forbidding. The  oldest parts of the prison date  back to the I830's and the walls  seem to exude a numbing aura  of privation and hopelessness.  The guards are mostly ex-Army  men of small education and the  place is run on strict militaristic  lines. Herb Wilson is reminded  of Oscar Wilde's grim poem  The Ballad of Reading Jail.  Things have obviously changed  little here since Victorian times.  Nonetheless, Wilson is now  an inmate of Kingston - his  name reduced to a mere number  again. His lawyer has launched  an appeal but holds out little  hope of a reversal. He has been  hoisl by his own reputation -and  there is no way out. Bottling up  his anger, Wilson, outwardly at  least, assumes an attitude of  meek compliance. But under the  meek facade, he is a bitter and  desperate man, paying lip service to authority, while seeking  any loophole that might  alleviate his plight. .  Just as his lawyer predicted,  Herb Wilson's appeal is summarily dismissed in mid-  September, 1936. He accepts  the news stoically. At least he  has drawn the prison hospital,  rather than some more-onerous  job.

Members of the inlriguingly named Bruno Gerussi  this week. (See story below)  Medallion are entertaining at Elphle's Cabaret  At Elphie's this week  Uniquely-named group  by Caryl Worden  Bruno Gerussi's Medallion  will grace our shores this week.  No, it's not a display of  jewellery worn by the star of  stage and screen. This is a five-  piece Vancouver rock band led  by singer (and Province  newspaper music critic) Tom'  Harrison.  In a recent phone interview,  Harrison explained how the six-  year-old group adopted such an  incongruous name.  "It was our original bass  player who came up with it actually," said Harrison. During a  fight with his girlfriend, the  bassist was momentarily  distracted by the television show  Celebrity Cooks, which Gerussi  hosted.  "There he was, his shirt open  to his navel, a large medallion  on his chest, and the bass player  said 'that's it'. His girlfriend  said it was the stupidest thing  she'd ever heard, and that just  confirmed it for him."  The odd name is also a signal  that the band is full of surprises,  according to Harrison. They  play a mix of original songs and  "Bruno-ized" versions of songs  of the 60s and 70s. "Our music  is simple, approachable, yet has  substance," Harrison said. He  cited influences such as the  Kinks, NRBQ, Dave Edmunds,  the Pretenders and British Invasion bands.  In describing his fellow band  members, Harrison's 17 years  as a rock critic come through.  On lead guitar is Jimmy Walker  ("He's the hottest unknown  around"); on rhythm is Ron  Hyslop ("Usually rhythm  players are overlooked, but  Ronnie really plays a key role in  our overall sound"); on bass is  "just a hot, versatile musician"  Jim Elliott' and Harrison sings  ("If you can call it lhat").  On this outing, the group will  have drummer Pat Steward (ex  Rubber Biscuit and Bryan  Adams cohort.) They've had 15  drummers over the years, mainly because they don't play  steadily enough to keep one  securely employed. "We all  have day jobs, and the band is  mainly for fun," Harrison said,  then, quickly adds, "That  doesn't mean we don't take our  music seriously."  The band released its first  album "In Search of the Fourth  Chord" in June last year, and  their second will be out later this  year.  So how does the Sunshine  Coast's claim to international  fame react to being the  namesake of a rock band? "At  first we heard he wasn't too  thrilled," Harrison replied.  "But we've met Bruno a couple  of times now. I even send him a  birthday card from the band  every year. He seems to realize  that it's all good-natured  humour." Gerussi has even offered to lend his services to a  rock video for the group. Harrison hopes to do some scouting  around for shooting sites for the  video on this, his first trip to  Gibsons.  Bruno Gerussi's Medallion  will appear at Elphie's Cabaret  February 8, 9 and 10.  Marketing  your art  Sunshine Coast Arts Council  and Emily Carr College of Art  and Design (ECCAD) Outreach  Program will present a special  art marketing workshop  February 24-25, instructed by  noted art director and teacher  Alice Rich of Vancouver. Ms  Rich will teach both beginners  and those with an established  interest in art marketing.  Alice Rich received her  Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts  from UBC in 1975, followed by  post graduate curatorial studies  at ECCAD and business  management at Simon Fraser  University.  Registration and location arrangements are being handled  by Elaine Futterman of the Sunshine Coast Arts Council who  may be reached at 885-5412 for  information. Up to 20 participants can be accommodated,  provided a minimum enrollment of 12 people is taken by  February 14.  "This art marketing  workshop was arranged in  cooperation with the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council as part of  our ongoing effort to provide  the same calibre of visual arts  instruction in Sechelt as we offer at our Vancouver campus,"  said Judith O'Keeffe, ECCAD  Outreach Program director.  "We are delighted to be bringing Alice Rich in from Vancouver for the benefit of anyone  in Sechelt who would like to  further their interest in art  marketing."  ECCAD arranges some 70  visual workshops around BC  each year, at the request of local  sponsors like the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council. Any community group or individual may  apply to host a workshop,  taught by one of some 90 professional artist-teachers  available through the college.

Smashed about  the earholes by unkind fate?  More miserable than a lap dog  caught in the rain? Look at it  this way; Troubles are like a  winter hike on Elphinstone.  Dense clouds descend and the  hiker mucks about in mist and  falling snow. At the same time  over on Highway 101 a passing  motorist sees a shaft of sunlight  cutting the cloud cover,  momentarily illuminating the  mountain peak sparkling white.  Both hiker and motorist are experiencing the mountain. The  difference is perspective.  Or, troubles are like boating  Howe Sound in a small sailboat.

Steak, pasta, seafood, or pizza were among  the items that awaited our choosing.  We decided that for the youngster among us the tempting Omega appetizers would be more than enough. He  regaled himself with Kalamari, escargots and homus with  pita bread with obvious relish.  We settled for succulent lobster tails and mouthwatering rack of lamb. With perhaps more enthusiasm  than sophistication we traded tastes, my lamb for her  lobster.  Everything was wonderful. Both entrees included a crisp  green salad, tenderly steamed carrots and broccoli, plus  the incomparable Omega Potato, one of the true delights  of Sunshine Coast eating. Dessert?

(See accompanying story).       -Dave Frawr photo  On The Rocks  Mixed bonspiel results  by Harry Turner  The Mixed Bonspiel is now  history and the winners have  been determined for another  season.  The winner of A Event was  the Lewis rink with the Lan-  chbury rink coming in second.  In the B Event Larry  Paradon came in first and  Howie Larsen came in second.  C Event was the Ed Hill rink  followed by the Boyle foursome  and the D Event winner was the  Axford team who beat out the  Jarvos team.  The correct positioning of the  throwing arm is the topic of this  week. The throwing arm must  be extended to its full length at  all times without rigidity or tension. The stone is placed just far  enough forward to cause full extension of the arm.  The throwing arm must be  kept straight during the backsw-  ing, yet without any muscle tension. Bending the elbow might  cause the rock to swing off line,  thus forcing the stone to reach  the ice late during the forward  motion creating a balance and  timing problem.  Conversely, overreaching  with the throwing arm will pull  the shoulder forward, forcing  the opposite shoulder back so  the hips and trunk may be forced off line. During the forward  motion, the throwing arm must  be extended at a comfortable,  easy reach.  The motion of the release  should find the hand in the  handshake position at the conclusion of the throw. The in-  turn is applied by an inward  rotation of the wrist. The outturn is best thrown by starting  the handle of the rock about 25  to 45 degrees clockwise from  center and then maintaining  that angle during the entire  backswing.  At the point just prior to  release, the out-turn is applied  by slowly rotating the hand to  the handshake position.

It was the first loss of the year  for the Wakefield team after being tied by the Buccaneers and  Roberts Creek previously.  Gilligans held leads over  Wakefield of 3 to 2 at the end of  the first and 5 to 3 heading into  the final period. Gilligans Gord  Clayton and Ryan Paul each  scored a pair of goals while  defenseman Mike Stevenson  chipped in the other goal.  Wakefield was checked very  tightly the whole game with the  only players able to score being  Darren Kohuch, Gary Benner  and Ted Bracket.  The Hawks who are tied for  third place with Roberts Creek  beat the Flyers 6 to 5 in a very  close game. Frank Dixon and  Shane Joe each scored a pair for  the Hawks while Darren Dixon  and Jordan Belrose also scored.  Gilligans was led by Gord  Clayton with a pair while single  goals were contributed by Randy Benner, Ryan Paul and Mike  Stevenson.

Dear Members:  For many years now, this  society has worked to build a  theatre for the performing arts  at Gibsons. Through the efforts  of many people, we have accumulated substantial funds  held in trust at the Sunshine  Coast Credit Union and many  more pledged contributions  awaiting the commencement of  a theatre building.  In consideration of the  dedicated efforts of everyone to  have a theatre, the board of  directors of the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project Society  (GLTPS) intends to present the i  following motions to the annual  general meeting.  'Whereas the realization of  the original theatre facility in  Gibsons did not receive the  necessary provincial and federal  governmental funding to start  construction on the 'old  firehall' site, and whereas the  Gibsons area is in desperate  need of some type of theatrical  facility, the GLTPS moves that  its directors re-direct their efforts and the invested funds and  pledged contributions specifically to the upgrading of the  Women's Institute Hall theatre  capabilities provided that the  seating can be increased to 200  seats and that the building will  be adapted to facilitate live  theatre presentations and also  subject to the written approval  of individual and corporate  donors where appropriate.'  Also that, 'whereas the Gibsons Landing Heritage Society  (GLHS) has the expertise and  funding ability to restore and  maintain the heritage qualities  of the building, and the GLTPS  has the expertise and funding  ability to construct and manage  the operating theatre component, we further recommend  that Gibsons Council consider a  new management team to coordinate joint development and  promotion of the Women's Institute Hall project involving  equal representation from both  groups so that the residents of  the Sunshine Coast will receive  maximum benefit from the hall  as a community and professional theatre facility.'  Let us explain our rationale.  Due to the major donations of  provincial and federal governmental funding to the Sechelt  Indian Band Complex, we cannot expect sufficient governmental contributions to our  original   theatre  in   the   im-  r^^^  Happy Holiday Motorhome  Rentals.

The integrity of the GLTPS  thus rests in pursuing other  faster ways to help Gibsons to  obtain a centre for theatrical  productions. However, it would  be irresponsible on our part to  endorse a project such as the  Women's Institute Hall if it is  not going to be designed with  enough seating capacity to ensure an operation that will bring  in enough revenue to cover expenses.  This also must be a concern  for Gibsons Council because  Gibsons taxpayers cannot afford a facility that will end up as  a deficit either by direct costs or  by constant supportive grants to  user groups of the facility.  Our research has indicated  that 200 seats is the minimum  needed to cover expenses of user  groups. This need might involve  a small extension to the building  but if done to heritage standards on the least visible side, it  should be still acceptable for  heritage funding,  It is our position that we cannot responsibly contribute to a  facility that by present planning  will likely lose money. Also, our  efforts should enhance the  building's ability to stage  theatre events and our monies  will thus specifically be  designated to pay for stage,  Member of  ALLIED...

With regard to the management recommendation, it is felt  that Gibsons Council should  maintain control over the  development of this project and  our recommendation would  achieve that while still involving  the volunteer efforts of very  qualified citizens of the Sunshine Coast in the development  i and management of the hall.  Now that compromises have  to be made, it is very sad for the  present board members of the  GLTPS to realize that the  beautifully designed theatre that  we have worked on for over five  years will not happen in the  foreseeable future.  With this in mind, we endorse  the Women's Institute Hall project as we have detailed and  hope that our members will also  endorse these motions at the  Annual General Meeting to be  held on Thursday, February 8 at  7:30 pm in the Marine Room  under Gibsons Library.

Ms Peggy Connor  Chairperson SCRD  Dear Ms connor:  The rational and environmentally safe development  of the Sechelt Inlet for industrial, recreational, and  residential joint-use requires  that the inlet be under one  jurisdiction.  The expansion of Area C to  include the land area enclosed  within the watershed flowing into Sechelt Inlet will accomplish  this in a very real way.  At the present time, the inlet  and the lands adjacent to it fall  within the jurisdiction of Area  A, Area B, Area F, and the  federal and provincial governments. In much of the area,  proposed development projects  are slowed or discouraged from  fruition because developers  must in most cases work with  two or more of the controlling  jurisdictions. Many of the requirements of the various  jurisdictions are also at cross  purposes, and either make it impossible for anyone to meet all  the requirements, or make it  possible for a developer to embark on an environmentally unsafe project because the regulations are not consistent  throughout the overall region.  It is in the best interest of all  residents and businesses in  Sechelt and the Sunshine Coast  to ensure that the Inlet Study is  implemented so that the inlet is  developed along lines that will  allow   the   beauty  and   the  Bus note  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  Trudy, Geoge Heller,  C 711, Franklin Road,  Gibsons, BC, VON 1V0  Re: Personal Appeal - Busing of  School Children  Dear Family,  We refer to your letter to the  editor of the Coast News,  published January 29 on page  19. It might interest you that we  have addressed the school board  in connection with the Budget  89/90 as follows, in regards to  busing:  "We have learned that the  capacity of your transport contractor has been exhausted and  that you are unable to provide  busing for English speaking  students, who are presently  walking long distances.  However, a large portion of the  'Busing Capacity' is utilized for  the transport of Early French  Immersion pupils to Sechelt and  Gibsons. Therefore, the acquisition cost of transport capacity  must be directly apportioned to  the Early French Immersion  program."  We hope that our represen-  latins to the school board will  give relief to the majority of our  school children, and that the  select few Early French Immersion students will not be  pampered with more privileges  than they already have now.  Jakob Knaus  APEC  Director reporting  resources to be enjoyed and used by all.  Other proposals will fragment the jurisdictional control,  and allow haphazard development and use to take place.  You are urged to implement  the expansion of Area C to include the watershed around  Sechelt Inlet, and place its  development under one jurisdiction.  R.C.

White has recently been  asked to work on NDP policy  on community watershed protection by environment critic  John Cashore.  "We're hearing a lot or frizzy  talk from the provincial government about improved environmental protection," White told  a meeting or party supporters in  Gibsons Thursday, "but ir we  can't even protect the water we  drink, what can we protect?"  White pointed to Garden Bay  Lake and Haslam Lake in  Pender Harbour as well as the  regional district's Chapman  Lake watershed as key drinking  water sources currently  threatened by various types of  development.  "I have been involved in ef-  forts to protect the Haslam  Lake watershed for 15 years and  Ihe South Pender Harbour  Waterworks has never got past  square one," White saw). "We  have been given the brush-ofr  by every department in Victoria  and now we are fighting a  desperate battle to prevent the  watershed from being clear cut  virtually to the reservoir's  edge."  In Garden Bay, concern is  steadily rising about the threat  of pollution from new subdivision development around  Garden Bay Lake, Ihe source or  drinking water for much of the  north side of Pender Harbour.  The regional board has been  considering some form of zoning controls, bul lhat approach  has run into delays. In the  meantime, clearing goes on and  residents are upset over reports  of construction equipment getting too close to the water and  oil slicks appearing on the lake.  The threat posed by logging  around the Chapman Lake  watershed is potentially even  more serious, since Chapman  Creek represents 'the drinking  water mothcrlode' for the entire  Sunshine Coast.  The problem, While says, is  that the provincial government  has never seen Hi to bring in  adequate legislation for the protection of domestic water supply areas. Watersheds for major  urban centre like Vancouver are  protected by special statute  which makes it illegal to scl fool  in them, but there is no standing  legislation which makes ii possible to extend comparable protection of smaller communities'  watersheds.  White stressed thai the pro  tection of community water  supply areas cannot be portrayed as a threat to the  development or forest industries  because the territories involved  are tiny compared to such controversial wilderness areas as the  Stein or the Carmanah.  "In most cases the foture of  entire communities is being  placed in jeopardy for a bit of  small change. It doesn't make  sense economically or any other  way."  White suggested a swap  might be considered to preserve  logging jobs in the case of  Chapman Lake.  White said he approached  Cashore about preparing  specific policy on the issue  because he wants something  ready in case the NDP is called  upon to form government in the  coming year, as he expects it  will. "The policy I foresee will  simply be a refinement of the  general policy Mr. Harcourt announced earlier this week, of  seeking greater community involvement in resource management decisions," White added.

COAST   NF.WS Photo   Reprints  Any published photo or your  choice from the contact sheets  5x7    $6"  8x10   9CI  Modem astrology takes two  approaches in explaining the  ability to accurately assess an individual's personality traits and  predict the nature of future  events and their impacts on the  individual. One widely adopted  theory is summed up in the  words, "As above, so below".  The suggestion is that the  macrocosm is merely a reflection of the microcosm.  These astrologers maintain  that planetary positions do not  so much afreet this world and  its inhabitants, rather they  reflect what is happening and  will happen.  Others quote well-documented scientific experiments  which show the impact of  planets, ihe Moon and Sun on  electromagnetic activities on this  planet. Based on the premise  that much human behaviour is a  result  or chemical and elec  tromagnetic activity in the  brain, these astrologers accept  some causal relationship between human beings and the  relative movement of the  planets and Moon around the  Sun.  Most try to avoid the whole  question and personally develop  a philosophy and approach  which combines the two in a  way the astrologer can live with.  One precept that all good,  modern astrologers are firmly  committed to is thai free will is  the ultimate determining factor  in any human experience.  The point of astrology,  therefore, is to allow the individual more control over  his/her life by providing a  chance to prepare for and  understand those things that  happen to us and in us.  The next two weeks, for example, would have caused  astrologers in by-gone days to  wander about muttering doom  SUNSHINE COAST  INSURANCE AGENCIES ltd.  #102 KERN'S PLAZA  GIBSONS.

After considering every element  of a case, adjusters use their  training and expertise to reach a  fair settlement - one that a court  would find acceptable.

There is  no doubt that there will be an  intensity of experience during  this period that will be the  equivalent of personal earthquakes and volcanos.  For those who know astrology, a quick rundown. On  February 9 Venus is stationary  at 20 degrees Capricorn; Pluto  almost stationary at 17 degrees  Scorpio (squaring the natal  Pluto of most of the baby-  boomers); Mars and Uranus are  conjunct at seven degrees  Capricorn and at a declination  of 23 degrees South to top it  off; there's a lunar eclipse with  the Moon at 20 degrees Leo  squaring Pluto. Have I missed  anything?  To the layman, the indications are that tempers will be  particularly volatile for these  two weeks with the time of most  upheaval peaking on February  9.  Think of it as going into a  house of mirrors at the fair.  Things will get distorted and  Mown out of proportion, but if  you know it's happening,  there's no reason to get caught  up in it.  Especially on the 8,9 and 10  however, it's wise to take  precautions. Avoid sharp, cutting implements, forget about  chopping kindling for these  three days.  If you're planning a special  celebration for Valentine's Day,  leave it for the following  weekend and avoid stress. It  would also be advisable to avoid  alcohol during this time, as it  tends to leave you less in control.  You don't want to amputate  an important part of your life  because it looked distorted in  some mirror at the carnival, do  you? Keep your cool and your  sense of humour.  As a wise friend recently said,  "Whether it's wonderful or terrible, in the end it's all just fluff  and furor when you get some  perspective on things."  Health hazard  Continued from page 1  waste disposal methods. The  provincial government forced  the issue by limiting the number  and duration of burn permits  for Howe Sound.  At its first meeting, the wood  waste task force came up with  two strategies, according to a  report given to the SCRD: to  "a) convert the wood to hog  fuel to be sent to Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper for controlled  burning in their boiler; and b)  convert to a complete, high  temperature combustion process." The group hopes to have  alternatives in place by the end  of this year.  The SCRD Environmental  Task Force is now looking at  the other wood smoke culprits  as well. Although the residential  problem only occurs at this time  of year, when home wood  stoves are going full blast, it accounts for about one third of  the smoke that shrouds the  Coast.  One way of reducing the problem would be to install  catalytic converters on wood  stoves. But, overall, monitoring  residential smoke output would  be "difficult at best," said  Weston. "You'd have to go  around and check each person's  chimney." SCRD Director Jim  Gurney agreed, adding "with  the host of micro-climates here,  you'd need a dozen air quality  monitors."  Land clearing poses another  smoky dilemma. Alderman  Graham explained that rubber  tires are often used to get brush  piles going, which spews out a  large volume of smoke. He suggested encouraging "optimum-  sized" burn piles, consisting of  continuous, slow feeding of fuel  into a fire rather than one huge  blaze. "This would allow the  smoke to dissipate better,"  Graham said.  Gurney asked how bad a problem wood smoke is to area  residents. "I think before we  act, we need some hard information as to exactly what the  hazards are and their effects. Is  it a significant problem?"  Task force member Pam  Robbins, chairman of the  Coastal Association to Protect  the Environment (CAPE)  volunteered to consult with experts on the possible contaminants of wood smoke and  report back at the next task  force meeting with her findings.  NDP all set  In a series of events early last  week, the competition for New  Democrat candidate in our newly created provincial riding of  Powell River/Sunshine Coast  came to a sudden climax.  Supporters of the two  declared candidates, publisher  Howard White of Pender Harbour and party worker Brenda  DeGraag of Powell River, faced  off at a Constituency Association meeting on Sunday,  January 21.  White's supporters had  hoped to locate the Nominating  Convention in the 'Sunshine  Coast' end of the riding or split  the convention into two  meetings, as the balance of  member population has shifted  south.  Despite such efforts the majority in the Constituency Executive chose to locate the convention in Powell River on the  date of March 24.  This may not significantly affect the actual outcome,  because a mail ballot process  has been adopted which should  minimize the effects of our  geographic split.  Both candidates have been  running party membership  drives to sign up supporters. To  be eligible to vote at the convention it was necessary to sign up  60 days before the March 24  convention, thus last Tuesday's  deadline.  Almost 400 new members  were recruited locally in the two  day flurry, primarily by  Howard White's workers, NDP  membership has more than  doubled as a result of these  campaigns.  In the next two months both  candidates will be working to  woo NDP members to their  support through telephone campaigns, mail-outs and public  candidates meetings.  CAPTURE A HEART  WITH FLOWERS.

Home Support Society's position  M***v'  PIPELINE  CROSSING  AHEAD  Sign of the times,  arrival of the new  -��� "^r-:-  Above is the indication  natural gas pipeline.  on Highway 101 of the  ���Ann Cook photo  Editor:  There was recent publicity in  The Press about Sunshine Coast  Home Support Workers and in  Vancouver about Maple Ridge  Home Support Workers. To  date, the workers on the Sunshine Coast were off the job for  one hour on January 19. In  Maple Ridge, the workers have  been on strike since January 22.  Here are further facts about the  situation.  Negotiations have broken off  between the British Columbia  Government Employees Union  (BCGEU) and four home support agencies: Sunshine Coast,  Fernwood Home Support in  Victoria, Ridge Meadows in  Maple Ridge and Valley Home  Support in Clearbrook.  The union has a mandate for  strike action. The employers'  last proposal was rejected by the  union. We offered the same  wages and benefits and terms  that already exist in an industry  standard agreement in 23 other  unionized Home Support agencies, some of which are  represented by BCGEU. We offered an average wage increase  of 31 per cent over three years  and three months.  Our agency sent a letter to  each of our clients advising  them of the situation. In the  event of a strike, our management staff will contact each  client by phone to discuss what  arrangements can be made during the strike.  We will attempt to provide  service to as many clients as  possible   by   utilizing   super  visory/support staff personnel  and members of the Board of  Directors.  All of us at SCHSS regret  normal service may have to be  suspended or reduced. We appreciate the patience and  understanding of our clients  and friends during these unsettled times.  We hope the dispute is resolved quickly. For further inlormation contact Mark Broun,  Director, Human Resource Services, c/o Continuing Care  Employee Relations Association (CCERA), 1-736-8691.  David Wells, President  Board of Director:,  SCHSS  In praise of Stan Dixon  Editor:  It is that time of year that has  come again to vote for four  counsellors and one chief for  the Sechelt Indian Band.  Right now and for the last  while we have taken on too  many chiefs. We have too many  chiefs and not enough Indians.  Mr. Burnside, please print my  feelings. I want to help our people.  We are all one family here in  our little community or reserve.  We need only one chief to  lead us and he must represent us  too. Stan Earl Joe Dixon is the  one that can get our people  jobs. Stan has what it takes to  succeed so that we can all be  working.  I read the newsletter. It says  our CEC programs officer  comes to our office once a  week. This would not have happened if it were not for Stan,  but it is not enough.  Some people are always talking and putting Stan down, they  think I don't know the truth.  Stan is ALWAYS working for  us. Everything he does is for  Sechelters...We don't want to  go backwards. We're losing  sight of our future.  I hope, when election day  comes, you will not let anyone  intimidate you. Vote for Stan,  he is our man for the 90s.  I think of what is happening  and it is very demoralizing, our  children doing little or nothing;  high school kids quitting school.  We have to help Stan. He has  the SED Fitness Centre but he  can't do what has to be done by  himself. Help him on February  12, 1990. Go to (he polls and  vote for Stan Dixon. I think  Carl has the rules about advance voting.  We can't go back to the olj  system...Stan helped us get  ahead. We have self-government. Sechelt wants to move  ahead. This will not work b\  pretending, or trying to erase  Stan's achievements. Stan is a  man with integrity and honesty.  Let us not continue to reinvent the wheel. Only the  whiteman makes money when  we do thai. Be honest with  yourselves, vote for Stan. He  has vision.
