Array 50 cents per copy on news stands  SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST SINCE 1945  lanuary 13, 1992    Volume 4(>     Issue 02  Shake-up  ofstaff  for the  District  of Sechelt  etf JIM aVjaaj  There's been a whole lot of  shaking up going on in the  offices of Sechelt's municipal  hall recently.  After over three years as  planner and approving officer  with the District of Sechelt, Rob  Sabine has resigned to tackle  further planning and development in a position with a  Lower Mainland municipality.  Sabine would not say immediately which municipality he  would be joining. He will likely be leaving Sechelt by the end  of January.  In a press release, Mayor  Nancy MacLarty said it was  with "regret" that the municipality received Sabine's resignation, but that the new position  "affords him great opportunity  of advancing his career in the  area of municipal administration, while still continuing with  the planning function.  "Mr. Sabine has worked diligently for the muncipality over  the past years and while we will  miss him, we respect Rob's  decision regarding the future  directions of his career."  Sabine joined the District of  Sechelt in 1988 as the municipality's first full-time planner.  Previously he had been  employed for 12 years as a  planner for the District of Powell River.  turn to page 3  Gibsons turns  out in force for  OCP hearing  7 think you'll  find there  will be further  public  hearings'  Eric Small  The first public hearing on Gibsons proposed Official Community Plan drew 200  participants - assentors and dissenlors - Wednesday, January 8 at the Cedars Inn.  Joel Johnstone photo  Rt'siilt'iits ul Gibsons turned out in force last week to voice their  opinions on the draft of the new Official Community Plan (OCP)  When finally adopted, Ihe plan will be a legal document which  will determine the future characteristics of the town ami the public  hearing was an opportunity for the public to express their opinions  on the plan before il becomes law.  Although Ihe speakers at last week's hearing were generally  supportive "' 'he work lhat went into the plan and the overall philosophy guiding it, most had serious reservations about some of the  details  Several suggested that this may  be the lime to take another look at  restructuring.  "The town is being forced lo  consider serving a greater population, yel the population desires lo  keep the small town atmosphere,"  commented former alderman John  Reynolds.  "Il is a contradiction in terms to maintain this atmosphere in Ihe  shadow of a seven storey apartment block. It has long been accepted, even by the opponents, that there will be a time when restructuring is appropriate...In my opinion, that time is now.  "If you ignore restructuring as an issue, it is not in the best  Interests of the taxpayers or the community at large."  Provisions for a golf course in Ihe limited land base of Ihe town  did not make sense to many. "I doubt that an entrepreneur exists  who would develop a nine-hole 'organic' golf course," commented  Blunt* llagedorn. "This area should lie devoted to recreational and  single family use "  Others fell a recreation centre would better serve the needs of  the community,  School Trustees Shawn Cardinall and Pal Stewart warned that  the Ministry of Education would be unlikely lo consider funding  for relocation of present schools and the resource centre as outlined  in the plan and they pointed out Ihe proposed sites were no better  than the present locations in respect to student safety.  Cardinall said the school hoard felt there had not been enough  time to adequately study the plan.  This idea was echoed by several others, including Huns Otinpuu  turn to page 2  Tetrahedron, Caren  may get SCRD help  Director Jim Gtirney called on the regional board January 9 to  take pro-environmental stands on the future of the Tetrahedron  Plateau and the Caren Range.  Gurney made two notices of motion (indications of intent rather  than actual motions) that both the Caren Range and the Tetrahedron area should be protected from further logging.  "...The Tetrahedron Plateau should be set aside as a watershed,  for wilderness values and for old growth values..." declared Gurney in the first notice of motion.  He pointed out lhat the LRUP (Land Resource Use Plan) committee set up to decide the best use for the Tetrahedron, be it logging of wilderness or recreation area, had been proceeding for over  two years without a resolution.  He noted, however, that enough information had come from the  LRUP efforts for the SCRD to lake a definite position.  In making his second notice of motion, regarding the Caren  Range, Gurney said, "rather than get into the convoluted process  we have with the Tetrahedron (with an LRUP process), we recognize that there is enough evidence to support this area also being  set aside. It's an old-growth area with some wilderness value..."  Gurney said both issues "pointed to a failure on the pari of the  Ministry of Forests (MOF)" lo properly manage Ihe forestry  resource and should be discussed with the MOF, and the region's  MP, Ray Skelly, and the Coast's MLA, Gordon Wilson, as soon as  possible.  '92 rate increases for auto insurance  are effective immediately, says ICBC  Original date of February 1 changed due to public efforts to avoid increases  by Jane Seyd  Business was brisk at Sunshine Coast insurance agencies  during the first ten days of  1992, following announcements  by ICBC in December thai a 19  percent increase in autoplan  premiums would be in effect by  February 1.  But that all ended last week  when ICBC jumped the gun on  the date originally announced  for the increase, making the  new premimums effective  immediately on January 9.  During the first part of Ihe  month, Coasl motorists were  apparently eager lo cancel existing auto insurance policies and  take out new ones before the  new increased rates came into  effect.  "It was crazy, hectic," said  Dean Butler of Sechelt Insur  ance Agency, "At this time of  the year, under a normal situation you'd have one or two cancellations a week and we were  probably having 15 a day," he  said. Some motorists were even  cancelling policies which didn't  expire until half way through  1992 in a bid to lake advantage  of the lower rales, convinced  thai there were great savings to  be had.  Ame Peterson of Suncoast  Insurance said they had also  experienced an increase in  autoplan business. "Yes we certainly did have a surge of people coming in as soon as the  increase was announced," he  said.  The cost of cancelling an  existing policy and taking out a  new one is $35. But according  to Coast insurance agencies,  most drivers saved between $50  and $150 by taking advantage  of the 1991 rates. In some cases  they saved up to $200.  Some drivers apparently put  off cancelling and renewing  iheir policies, believing they  had until the end of the month  to make the changes. "There  were a lot of people who were  talking about it and didn't feel  any urgency in doing it," said  Ben Sills of Sunshine Coast  Insurance, "and now they're loo  late."  ICBC changed the dale of  Ihe premium increases because  a far greater number of people  than expected were cancelling  and renewing policies at Ihe  MacLarty proposes noise  control for Sechelt area  by targeting airplanes  by Jane Seyd  Local commercial airline  operators have expressed concern about a proposal to designate areas over Sechelt and  Porpoise Bay as "noise sensitive".  The proposal to designate  areas near the float plane terminal at Porpoise Bay and the airport near Wilson Creek as  "noise sensitive" was suggested  by Sechelt Mayor Nancy  MacLarty, following what she  termed the success of Gibsons  in having their harbour deemed  noise sensitive by Transport  Canada, and complaints  received from residents of  Sechelt. MacLarty said she had  contacted Transport Canada and  had been informed the department would consider a similar  request from Sechelt.  "If approved, it would result  in a notation on the Air Navigation System Requirements that  the area is noise sensitive,"  MacLarty said in a report, "This  would alert pilots to the fact that  local residents are concerned by  noise. Pilots can then take evasive action by going around the  turn to page 3  Christmas  road results  The Roadside Screening  Device (RSD) employed in  this season's Drinking and  Driving Counter-Attack  Program, Dec. 8 through to  Jan. 6, is credited wilh  helping to curb the number of  impaired driving charges this  season. Local RCMP report:  - 2107 vehicles were checked  - 17 drivers screened by  device  - I full breathalyzer due to  RSD  - 4 impaired charges laid  - 16 24-hour driver  suspensions  Other Christmas  vehicle  related statistics include:  ��� 10 injury collisions  - 11 people injured  - 12 accident-related charges  1991 rate. In a prepared statement, ICBC President Tom  Holmes said if the transactions  continued at the same rate until  the end of January, the corporation would lose $9 million in  premium income for 1992. By  making the new rates effective  Jan. 9, ICBC expected to cut  this loss by $6 million.  Not everybody was in a rush  to "beat the system" of rate  increases, though. According lo  Ben Sills, autoplan business had  not been as busy as expected  following the announcement of  premium increases. Some people were waiting for their bank  accounts to recover from Christmas spending, while others  decided they didn't want to be  stuck wilh a future expiry date  of Dec. 31, he said.  Seawalk  sex assault  investigated  On January 6 1992. just after  midnight, a 29 year old Lower  Mainland woman was sexually  assaulted in Gibsons under the  government wharf.  Police investigation lo dale  has revealed the woman had  left one of the local bars. She  was walking on the seawall  under the wharf area, when she  was assaulted. A vague description of the suspect at this time  is: Male, average height, wearing a macinaw jacket, shoulder  length hair, moustache, possibly  non-white.  An artist's rendering from  Vancouver is being arranged  with the help of the victim.

High density housing development Ml the concept which  raised the most objection from  those present at the public hearing Many were alarmed by the  OCP committee's projection of  a maximum population of  15000.  The subject was raised again  and again, and Kathleen Vance  expressed the ideas of many  others when she said. "I understand that growth is going to  have to occur if Gibsons is  going to thrive as a community.  "At the same time 1 think we  ha\ e to remember that longtime  residents want to live in a Gibsons which is similar to the one  they spent most of their lives  in."  She went on to say that newcomers are attracted lo Gibsons  just because it is a "boat ride  away from Vancouver" and  offers relief from the noise,  crowds and traffic of the city.  "Growth in Gibsons is  dependent on maintaining the  Facing  the   public,  left  to  right,  local  architect  Dick  Williams,  Aid.  Kd  Sleeves,  Mayor Eric Small, Aid. Margaret Morrison, Aid.

I  do not feel people will accept  the high density in Gibsons they  would elsewhere because they  expect a reward when they gel  here, and that reward is the  lower density of a coastal village.  "If what's at the other end of  the boat trip is the same as what  they've left, they might as well  go elsewhere."  Hans Ounpuu, developer of  the Twin Oaks and North Oaks  villages put the concept of the  densities recommended in Ihe  plan into more graphic terms.  He said the present 22 town-  homes at Twin Oaks village  represented a density of 10 families per acre. The proposed D5  zoning of the plan would permit  175 to 250 families in the same  amount of space.  Ounpuu also questioned the  location of the high density residential areas. He suggested they  were too far away from shopping centres, a situation which  would ultimately create  increased parking problems  because people would be forced  to drive, rather than walk to  76e SttfjUm *K*4 ��<z*uled!

Jane Loop, member of the  OCP committee, replying to the  concerns about high density  housing pointed out there was  really no way of preventing a  large influx of people into Gibsons and il would be better to  have a plan to deal with it in an  orderly way.  "1 don't want Gibsons to  look like Kingsway or Surrey,"  she said. "I don't want those  things to happen because  nobody has plans in the form of  a by-law or a community plan.  "A developer could come in  and obey all Ihe rules of the  game and everybody in town  would hate it, but he would be  legally within his rights lo do it  because we don't have a plan.  You have to do it ahead of the  fact in order lo protect Ihe town.  "I don't think there was anybody on the committee who  said they wanted Gibsons to  have a population of 15,000.  That number is the absolute  maximum capacity (the land  base of the town could support)."  She said the areas designated  for high density housing would  in some cases be used for long  term care facilities and would  be no different than the density  at Shomcliffe in Sechell.  Many people objected lo  'sacrificing' a portion of Holland Park to commercial development but Mayor Eric Small  pointed out that in spite of the  name, Holland Park is not officially a park but rather an area  which is zoned for public  assembly.  Others questioned the wisdom of locating the sewage  treatment facilities al the higher  altitude of the upper boundaries  of the town creating the need  for expensive pumping equipment.  The Friends of Gospel Rock  suggested some minor changes  in wording which would ensure  further protection for the ecologically sensitive area.  Lola Westell, speaking for  the Gibsons Landing Heritage  Society, noted lhat no provision  had been made in the plan for  preserving heritage buildings  and trees and offered to provide  a list of these to be included in  the plan.  At the close of the hearing  Mayor Eric Small took a quick  straw vole of council members  and all agreed thai Ihe numerous concerns expressed at the  hearing called for another public hearing lo iron out details.  "This is not an official council session," he told the audience, " so 1 can't call for a  motion to that effect, but I think  you'll find there will be further  public hearings."  c ^ North  Oaks  767 North Rd.,  Gibsons.

Centra Gas will be providing al least one Roberts Creek property with natural gas despite Ihe company's insistence that the area's  population is loo small for profitable distribution.  Speaking at the January 9 SCRD meeting, Director Brett  McGillivray said Camp Byng, a boy scout camp located on  Roberts Creek's Lower Road, owned Ihe right of way along the  road and forced Centra Gas to provide the properly with natural  gas in return for an easement through the property.  "I'm not just talking about the low pressure line," McGillivray  staled. "They've got a small reducing station."  The vice-president of the Canadian Boy Scouts Western  Region, Peter Berry, confirmed McGillivray's comments but said  the camp would be provided a gas "regulator", not a reducing station.  Berry told the Coast News negotiations for the camp lo receive  gas were under way at the same time Centra Gas held its meetings  with Roberts Creek residents and told ihem their area wasn't sufficiently populated lo receive natural gas.  McGillivray indicated that his Roberts Creek constituents  wouldn't be happy about the turn of events.

Following Ihe resignation of Clerk-Administrator Malcolm Shanks in April last year, Sabine  took on the responsibilities of acting clerk, in addition to his planning function, while Treasurer Art  Lew also become acting adminstrator for the district. In the latest developments, Lew has retained  the roles of both the treasurer and adminstrator,  but the district has been looking for a new clerk to  take over responsibilities from Sabine, and expects  to have someone hired by the end of January.  Nancy MacLarty said it wasn't possible for one  person to continue as both a clerk and planner in a  municipality like Sechelt. "In a smaller community  being a planner is a full-time job", she said. "In a  larger community where you have a staff of six or  seven planners, you can do that."  Sabine said the decision to leave Sechell had  been difficult lo make. Looking back on his work  as planner for Ihe municipality he commented "1  guess there are a lot of things I would have liked  to have seen through. But there are only so many  opportunities that will present themselves, and  you've got to decide."  Assistant planner Jim Johnstone will continue to  fulfill planning duties on three days a week while  the position is advertised, said MacLarty.  Meanwhile, Art Lew who has been acting  adminstrator since July has accepted a three-year  contract for a permanent position as adminstrator,  and will also be handling responsibilities as treasurer.  Lew said in future all senior staff would be hired  under a similar contractual arrangement, which is a  change from Ihe District's past practice. "It's normal in any senior position to have a contract to go  along with it...," he said. "Senior positions being  what they are, il gives the board or council a  chance to review them periodically, and then there  would be no legal ramifications of ending a contract al the end of its term."  The staff changes and restructuring at the  municipal hall are part of the progression which  can be expected as the district grows in size and  increases its responsibilites, said Lew.

She emphasized, however,  that the designation has no legal  force, and that the first priority  would continue to be safety of  aircraft and passengers. "It's  just a reminder lo private pilots  and public pilots that you're not  in the boonies anymore and you  can't buzz people's houses,"  she said.  But commercial operators  were not happy with the suggestion.  Al Campbell, owner and  operator of Tyee Air, based in  Porpoise Bay said nobody had  contacted him about ways local  operators could help deal with  the problem. "Tyee has been  sensitive to this situation for  years," he said. He added thai it  was usually private pilots and  pilots unfamiliar with the area  who created the noise problems  and that local operators tried to  keep noise as low as possible.  He said there were certain conditions, however, when noise  was unavoidable. "In a strong  southeast wind, you have to  come down over the sub-divisions."  Jack Apsouris of Coast  Western Airlines and Robin  MacGregor of Vancouver Helicopter also echoed Campbell's  concerns that Ihe noise sensitive  designation would "open up a  can of worms."  "Where's this all going to  stop?" asked Apsouris, "Are we  going lo have to go up lo Nine  Mile Point to begin our  descent?"  The operators also expressed  concern thai the designation  would eventually lead to a curfew on flight schedules, which  would make it impossible for  them lo operate.  They also pointed out that  the situation in Gibsons Harbour is not the same as in  Sechell, because no commercial  airline operates from Gibsons.  At the Sechelt planning committee meeting where the issue  was raised. Alderman Bob Wilson agreed with many of the  comments made by the operators.  "Knowing the people in this  area, it wouldn't take much for  them to complain," he said.  "Once they know it's a noise  sensitive area, they'll be out  there with their decibel meters."  "It's just one more  headache," said Robin MacGre  gor, "and boy, you don't need  headaches when you're flying  an aircraft in some of the conditions up and down the coast."

Never ininil the  tact that he got suddenly ill anil collapsed at the feet of  the Japanese Prime Minister. That may have been unfortunate and embarrassing for a political leader who has  made much of his machismo fitness, but such things can  happen to anyone.  No, it was the nature of the trip itself that seems puzzling.  Now let us see. President Bush is an avowed conservative, a believer in a free market economy, an advocate of  the principles that the less that government has lo do with  business the better off we will all be.  Fair enough, that's a known position and definitely one  that is in the philosophic ascendancy these days.  But how is it compatible with the leader of the world's  most powerful nation huckstering on behalf of an automobile industry which has simply failed to stay competitive?  One commentator pointed out lhat Chrysler, for example, spent on advertising in Japan only a fraction of the  sum that it awards its president for an annual salary.  Another assertion, almost incredible, is that the Americans don'l make cars with the steering on the right side  though the Japanese market requires this.  And if the American president is playing louring car  salesman, then Lee laccoca plunges ileeply into politics  on his return with a much quoted and vitriolic attack on  the Japanese and their trading policies.  There seems to be a clouding of philosophy here, lo say  the least.  Also, there is something ironic in hearing an American  business leader complain about the shipment of raw materials to Japan and the import of value added materials  from Japan. "It is," fulminates laccoca, "colonial".  indeed it is, Lee, and it is something that Canadians are  well familiar with, is it not?  Somehow we cannot believe the ills thai are besetting  the American economy will be cured either by a huckstering president nor an abusive business community. Neither, it would appear has a significant role to play in a free  market economy.  The perils of power  It has not taken long for the NDP government in Victoria to discover the perils of power.  Both the forest industry and the environmental movement are fierce in their criticisms of the first moves on the  managing of the BC forests but these are early days yel  and the full picture of how the government will respond  to the challenge of what is to be done to keep these warring interests in some state approaching peace is yet to be  seen.  Another area which is bedevilling our new government  is the area of finance. Of course they are blaming the difficulties that lie before them on their predecessors and of  course they are justified in so doing. But political memory  is notoriously short and allegiances fitful.  The best the government can hope to do is to dole out  the stiffest medicine without delay in the hope that by the  time their mandate has run its course they will seek election without the burden of wrestling with a growing  deficit.  The trick will be to keep their caucus intact whilst  unpopular steps are being taken.  letters  Help greatly-  appreciated  Through ihe medium of youi  newspaper I would like to thank  some local people who came lo  my rescue on Boxing Day 1991.  Boxing Day 1991 started out  a happy holiday, as il should.  My wife and I visited friends  and relatives. I felt fine all day  except for a rattle in my chest,  which 1 dismissed as Ihe prelude to a cold. As the lime came  to return home 1 was still feeling well enough to drive lo Gibsons. We left Richmond lo  catch the 9:15 lerry and made  the trip safely. I was having  trouble breathing, but fell confident 1 could continue home.  A trip to the men's room  changed everything. I was gasping for lack of oxygen and  could only lake one step al a  time. I was in serious trouble  and not able to get back to my  vehicle. 1 began to panic as the  ferry was in. It was at this time  a man unknown to me got out  of his vehicle and asked if 1  needed help. He talked me into  not rushing and when we got  back to my car, stood by me  while we waited for an ambulance.  Not too much is remembered  by the writer after this. I knew I  was in serious trouble but after  great action by the BC Ferries  employees and West Vancouver  Ambulance Service I was under  medical control. 1 remember little until we arrived at Lions  Gate Hospital. There was  immediate action on the part of  the hospital staff and three  hours later I was advised the  crisis was over and 1 was going  lo be fine.  Il is impossible for me to  adequately express my thanks to  those who came to my aid in  my hour of need. Without the  help of those good people 1  would not be writing this letter  of thanks. A special thanks to  the unknown man who came to  my assistance. Thank vou.  H.D. (Pat) MULLIGAN  Hemp unfairly  malaigned  Cannabis hemp, the world's  premier renewable natural  resource, was made illegal in  1937 to prevent it from competing industrially.  For over 3000 years until the  late 1800s, hemp was the  world's largest agricultural crop  and most important industry.  Hemp can provide us with  clothing and textiles, paper and  plastics, food and medicine, and  I meet all our energy needs.  i Hemp is the world's number  one source of sustainable  biomass (several tons per acre);  it contains one of the world's  best fibres and it will outpro  duce trees for paper by four lo  one. But. perhaps, more importantly, as a rotation crop and  soil conditioner, hemp is highly  regarded. A hemp field's root  system breaks and holds the  soil, preventing wind and water  erosion, provides nutrients and  "leaves the soil in perfect condition for next year's crop",  according to the USDA.  Healthy soil means healthy  plants and no need for chemicals. About half the chemicals  used in worldwide agriculture  are used on cotton fields. Cotton  growing is very hard on the soil.  Hemp, on the other hand, needs  no chemicals, is good for the  soil and yields a much stronger  and more durable fibre.  The re-legalization of  cannabis hemp may be the single, most important issue facing  humanity and all life on planet  earth.

BUZZ GREENFIELD  Negative response  to positive letter  In response to letters from C.  Mallory and Emily Barber-  Gareau about the Port Mellon  Men's Transition House, I  should like to make several  points.  In the first place, let me  make it very clear that the 'outcry' is not all from one person.  Presumably C. Mallory is referring to Janet Calder. I can  assure you that the whole community is solidly behind Janet  Calder. She has simply undertaken to act as our spokesperson. What is more, we have  widespread support for our  point of view from people outside the community who have  some knowledge of our situation.  We are a very tiny community, both as to numbers and as to  area, composed of very quiet-  living people all of whom have  lived here and known each  other for many years. Nobody  has claimed that all substance  abusers are evil, but it is hard to  see how the injection all of a  sudden of this many men into  our community can fail to alter  the complexion of it.  As for the facility possibly  enhancing our property values -  come on, C. Mallory, you can't  possibly be serious!  INGA FENWICK  Some silvery morning reflections on a winter Coast  "Well, Jake," I said to my old friend as he laid  out the chess board and heated up some mulled  cider on the wood stove, "give me your views of  the world as we enter this year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety two."  We had not seen much of each other, Jake and  I, for quite a while. My prolonged absence over  the summer and then a fair degree of absorption in  the world of business when I came back had limited my leisure time.  The morning had dawned overcast and rainy  but some silver in the west promised bener things  to come. The rain had stopped and the coast had  turned into a stark study in silver through various  shades of gray to the black sides of the mountains.  Before Jake's waterfront cabin a variety of ducks  paddled and dived. Crows and seagulls were wailing for the high tide to turn and retreat before they  went about the business of eating .  There is an old coast aphorism: "When the tide  is out the table is set," and nobody knows that better than the crows and the gulls.  Just a little down the beach a great blue heron  was surveying his domain from the top of barnacled pole, hunched and thoughtful like some curmudgeon of the coast. It was a winter morning on  the west coast and I was well content to be where I  was and in the company of Jake.  It had been many months since Jake had wel-  musings  john burnside  corned me to his cabin but he took my return in  stride as though it had only been the day before  that I had last dropped in, as is the way of old  friends.  "Views of the world, eh?" said Jake, as he put  two glasses of cider on the table and settled into  his favourite seat for the chess game. He had  already won the right to play white so he moved  his king's pawn then settled back with his cider  and cast a glance around that portion of the west  coast of British Columbia which had long been his  primary view of the world.  "I tell you, young fellow, that I don't find much  about the affairs of man to enthuse about. My  neighbour down the road was in the other day and  he was going on about how a Utopia was al hand  because the Soviet Union had collapsed. Damn old  fool! Damn near eighty years old and he's still following rainbows. Utopia, indeed. That's what  comes from having the mind of a lemming. You  fall off one cliff and wake up still breathing and  tell yourself that there are no more cliffs, no more  downfalls, no more danger.  "I'm just about as old as he is and I can't see  where anything is being learned and where nothing  is learned nothing can be changed. The fact is  we're on a fast track for disaster as a species and  nothing persuades me that we've learned that we  can't go on fouling our own nest for ever, nor that  there is any hope for lasting peace in the world  when two thirds of the people are close to starving.  "If you've come down here expecting some  comforting platitudes you've come to the wrong  place."  "I'd never dream of it, Jake. In fact. I'd be  downright disappointed if I came in for a visit and  heard a platitude of any kind."  "It's just as well," said Jake, "I'd hate to disappoint you."  We'd gol through the opening part of the game  and into the middle. I tried a gambit that I didn't  ihink Jake had seen for a while and got up and was  replenishing my cider glass whilst he looked it  over.  Outside the window the band of western silver  had enlarged and if anything intensified. The water  was silvered, the ducks were still paddling and  diving industriously in the shallows, the crows and  gulls were busy on the first edge of the sand bar to  be revealed and, while 1 watched, the heron too  decided it was lunch time and flapped away from  his barnacled pole. Jake made his move and joined  me by the window.  We surveyed the silvering morning in silence  for a while.  "Present time is the life of man," he said after a  pause. "This before us is what we are sure of now  and what we should be grateful for. It's when we  forget to live the moment in favour of some later  hope or some ideology that we begin to run amok.  "The collapse of the Soviet Empire and the liberalization of Eastern Europe has got some fools  like my buddy down the beach believing that there  are no more problems to solve. 'A free market  economy' is what's going to save the day we hear.  Seductive idea, isn't it. We don't have to do any  intelligent thinking or planning, just let good old  self interest and greed look after things and all will  be well.  "In short." said my old friend, "1 think we are  still fooling ourselves," and he went back to the  chess game and soon had me in trouble.  coast  The Sunshine Coasl News is locally owned  and published on ihe Sunshine Coast, B C  every Monday by Glassford Press Lid...

There are stories that give some weight to this theory. My  favourite is about Hassan the Assassin. He was Sultan of Turkey, hut  Ihe young Turks in revolt were approaching Ihe capital and most of  his people had fled Hassan could get away but he sat on in his throne  room biting his nails. His Vizier was translating the latest Sherlock  Holmes, just in the Strand Magazine, and passing it to him, page by  page.  There's no question lhat it's possible to gel hooked on this genre.  No question also thai there are limes when you'd really rather curl up  on a winter's evening with a new Freeling, say, than with a new biography of Mackenzie King A question maybe rises when real addiction sets in.  'Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes'  A problem wlih Ihe addicted is to remember what they've read  before, and many a librarian has experience of these poor souls coining lo the counter expecting lo lie told whether they've read this one  or lhat. A man I knew who ran a private library in the Grain  Exchange in Winnipeg initiated a method. He advised his patrons,  often haried traders waiting for some delay to develop, to circle the  page number relating to their age, then it was a simple matter to turn  to the age page when taking books out of the stacks and Bob was  their uncle. There was the little mailer that many would be of the  same age, and office numbers, vari-coloured inks, etc. were used.  Sometimes my friend wondered whether it mattered if they'd read  them before. I have found books with page numbers circled in this  way in the Gibsons Library.  But, averting the gaze from the truly addicted, there are a lot of  values to lie found on Ihe mystery shelves. The writing for example,  can be often or at least sometimes, better than is regularly found on  the best seller lists. The mystery writer wilh a sympathetic character  and an established series can kick free of a lot of professionally  imposed formulae and things can get fresher and brighter and more  individual. A former leader in this was a leading poet and head of Ihe  English Department al Oxford.  Wilh mystery writers the series is the thing, and this goes back lo  Agatha Christie in the 20s, and back to Conan Doyle and Sherlock  Holmes, and back to the beginning with (some say) EA Poe. The  series can have a number of advantages. The central character is  known, and so his personal quirks and quiddities can be played out at  leisure almost infinitely, as with a friend in real life.  'a whodunnit based in Gibsons'  Also the mystery story, involving the law and all, has to hoe  throughout to a basis of reality, and this can be refreshing, soothing  even, today. It is, in fact possible, if interested and with minimal  selection, to get a pretty good handle on comparative law while just  lolling about and pleasuring yourself with mystery stories.  To take two currently successful authors: Nicholas Freeling and  Ellis Peters, Freeling is an Englishman who went to Europe and  stayed there as soon as he could get out of school. Peters is a bit of a  mystery and I suspect may be more than one writer, but one of them  al least is a medieval scholar.  Freeling's detective is a French police commissaire and as you follow his stories you can pick up as much about the French judicial system, different as it is to the British, as perhaps you're going to want  to know. Peter's stories are set back in the 12th century, not the  beginning of British law of course, hut a significant time when the  law was getting hammered out.  It's tempting to think of a whodunnit based in Gibsons. The body  could lie found bobbing in the chuck up against the buoy at the mouth  of Gibsons Harbour. The amateur sleuth could be a retired old gaffer  writing a nature column in Ihe local paper. His general fuddy-duddy  go-around masks an infinite wit and lightening acuity. Skeletons  could he found to rattle in Ihe cupboards of the sleepy old town.  There could be a newspaper war going, three papers in the space for  two. Publishers get threatened, editors beaten up, columnists disappear. All fiction of course, but maybe there's some scope here   Last acceptable  form of bigotry  In case someone hasn't  noticed yet, it seems that  'androphobia', or fear and  hatred of men, has become the  last respectable bigotry. It is  now politically correct to make  all manner of anti-male statements, for the media to slavishly and uncritically report them,  and for men to either fawn on or  echo the distortions, or remain  silent. There is a crude expression used to describe a man  constantly cowed by a woman,  and il often springs to mind as I  listen to such pronouncements  and think of my own sex terrified of calling our sisters on  their blatant chauvinism, and  our brothers on Iheir complicity.  A typical but still shocking  example of this currently all-  pervasive sexism appears in  Stuart Bumside's Jan. 6 article,  'Film From Roberts Creek  Packs an Emotionally Charged  Message". Burnside writes  about "a computer-generated  image of a small fellow representing all things male in the  'constructed' world we live  in...with a large gun...". How  about: "...a little Jew representing all things Semitic...with a  large cash register..." or: "...a  burly babe representing all  things female...with a tight mini  and a seductive smile..."? Boy,  what an outcry there would be!  And let us look briefly at this  question of patriarchy. As a  philosophical anarchist, I'm  against rule by anyone. I don't  discriminate in my condemnation of 'the power elite'. And  judging from the recent historical record of women in power, I  equally shudder at the thought  of a bunch of them getting  together in a matriarchy and  governing me!  Those who are not anarchists  can only fairly talk about the  excesses of patriarchy. To  attack patriarchy per se is to  attack men, maleness, masculinity, and I assure the reader that  God or Nature or the Universe  did not create one sex 'badder'  than another. Wasn't that the  main message of the feminist  movement? Ah, how quickly  we forget, and how easy it is lo  hate and blame!

The meeting went well past  10 o'clock, and I had to leave  with a great many unanswered  questions. I hope your paper can  help me find the answers to  such questions as:  1. What does it mean to say  that Gibsons will grow to  15.000. four times its present  population? Have any other  communities in the Lower  Mainland grown that fast, and if  so. what has it meant for them?  2.

Unfortunately this has not been  ihe case, and head lice continues to plague Roberts Creek  Elementary.  This unexpected resurgence  of head lice in our community  has left community health  resources (the school nurse)  lean on lime allotted to this nuisance. Parent volunteers have  been trained lo check heads for  lice and iheir eggs. The school  then calls lo notify the parents  of children wilh lice. More volunteers are necessary lo check  heads and to phone parents.  However, it's the individual  parent's responsibility to check  their own child's head daily and  lo keep children wilh lice or  eggs home until treated. If the  school is lo be lice-free, all par-  ents must share this community  responsibility.  Treatment is relatively simple (shampooing with NIX) and^  certainly one application is relatively harmless. But several  applications of the mildly toxic  NIX makes one wonder about  the possible health hazard considering how porous a child's  scalp is. The scalp can be left  raw from continued treatment  and ihe hair dry and damaged.

Dave Macintosh of the Coastguard auxllllary displays the new Avon rescue cral  Coast Guard Auxiliary boat to  be stationed in Gibsons Marina  by Stuart Burnside  Plans are in the works to make the the Gibsons  area safer for anyone who works or enjoys recreation on the water. The Gibsons Yacht Club  (GYC) has recently agreed to sponsor an Avon  "fast response" rescue boat supplied through the  Coast Guard Auxiliary.  Commodore of the yacht club (and retired  Commodore of the Canadian Navy) Ian Morrow  said the club will be responsible for the housing  and upkeep of the Avon.  "Some of the members of the yacht club are  also going to train to be crew members." Morrow  told the Coast News, "along with other volunteers  from around the area."  According to Morrow, the GYC is the first  such organization to sponsor a Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel.  Gordy Hall, Vice President of the Canadian  Coast Guard Auxiliary for the western region,  said the Coast Guard had supplied the CGA with  four of the rubber rescue boats to be placed at  strategic locations along the Coast.  The Coast Guard Auxiliary (CGA) is an organization of trained volunteers who work 'hand in  glove' with Ihe Canadian Coast Guard to provide  rescue assistance on the water. It is similar to an  auxiliary police force but the volunteers usually  operate without direct Coast Guard supervision.  Hall, also director of operations for the CGA,  is responsible for finding homes for the four  Avons and said Gibsons was an ideal location.  "Gibsons used to have (a similar rescue  response set up) that fell through," Hall said, "so I  approached Ian Morrow about the possibility of  having the yacht club sponsor one of the Avons  for the area."  The other three Avons have been designated  for Bella Bella, Port Albemi and Queen Charlotte  City.  Hall noted the Coast Guard Auxiliary,  though it is funded through the CCG, is not  alloted money for maintenance, which is why it  is necessary to find sponsors.  He noted that, in return for maintaining the  boat, the yacht club will receive about $60 an  hour when the craft is used for rescues. The  money is paid by the Coast Guard through the  auxiliary.  "It's not nearly enough to pay the (Yacht  clubs') costs for maintaining the boat, though,"  Hall said, "They're still going to be out of  pocket."  Hall said he hoped the emergency response  craft which is now docked at the Gibsons Marina would have enough (two-person) crews to  be operating by March.  The boat is to be ready for action on a  round-the-clock basis with alternating crews  who will be contacted through a pager system  in the event of an emergency.  He said volunteer men and women in good  physical shape were encouraged to volunteer as  long as they live within 15 minutes of the Gibsons Marina.  Volunteers will have to undergo extensive  training (mostly nights and weekends) to ready  them for rescue work which includes handling  the Avon in all types of seas, CPR, survival  first aid, etc.  "The coxswain (skipper) also has to attend  the Coast Guard's Bamfield school or its  equivalent," Hall added.  The Bamfield course is a rigourous five-day  ordeal in which would-be coxswains learn the  finer points of operating in rough seas and rescue situations.  Anyone interested in volunteering for the  Coast Guard Auxiliary can contact Hall at 885-  9986.

Shorncliffe News  1 thought you'd like to read this piece from the  magazine, Shomcliffe News: The Call To Ottawa,  by Chris Luster. "On Nov. 18, 1991, Jean Schole-  field and I appeared before a House of Commons  comittee of finance to speak on Bill C-20. Bill C-  20 is a bill being put forward lo the House of  Commons for the cutback of funds to each  province's medicare payments from the federal  government.  "We spoke on Shorncliffe and the type of  lifestyle our residents enjoy. Also, we spoke of  Honourable Grace Mclnnis who shared our home  with us. We spoke about our opportunity to meet  with Judge Peter Seaton, who came one day and  had lunch with some staff, to hear our thoughts on  the future of long term care in British Columbia.  "It was all so exciting as Jean and I had never  been to Ottawa, and to have such an honour put  forward to us made it more special. We had a very  brief tour of Ottawa, saw 24 Sussex Drive, also the  grounds of the Governor General's house. We got  to sit in on question period at the House of Commons and have lunch at the 'famous' parliamentary cafeteria where the prices are indeed the best  in Canada. All in all, it was a very exciting two  days and ones I will never forget. Let's hope that  the groups that got a chance to speak on Bill C-20  will make a difference."  �����  NORTHERN FEATHER  Down Quilt  Special  SAVE 40%  TWIN QUEEN  60 X 88 88 x 88  $160.95 M 99.95  Available January 20,1992  100% white cotton shell ��� 260 thread count  Goose down ��� Construction: 12 inch  baffel box, 1 inch rise, double V  stitched & piped, with a 54�� rating   THE   KING  106x88  $239.95  DREAM SHOPPE  Bayside Building, Sechelt  (across from Trail Bay Mall)   885-1965    Now You're Sleeping     mmmm  davls bay news  by Jo-Anne Sheanh, 88S-3629  January is traditionally a 'blah' month; after all the mad rushing  around for Christmas, suddenly everything is a let-down.

Irene Davy will take the bird to the Rifle  Bird Sanctuary. Stuart Burnside photo  A safe rehabilitation  site for sick wildlife  located in Gibsons  by Start Ih-mM.  Found a sick or injured bird lately? Maybe there's an aban  doned baby squirrel hanging around the hack yard? Well there is a  place in Gibsons where you can take such animals lo recuperate  and receive the specialized care they need to survive.  The Gibsons Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre (GWRC) is a non  profit organization run by Clint and Irene Davy that is dedicated to  helping and protecting the Coast's wildlife.  The Davys' rehabilitation facility, located on their property in  upper Gibsons, is a continuation of rehabilitation efforts the couple  undertook for 10 years in Richmond before moving to Gibsons in  1988.  In order to function as a wildlife centre, according to Clint  Davy, there are two permits necessary; one from the federal govern-       'It's bl'COtni'  men! authorizing them lo care for all ., _ ,  migratory birds, and a second front OUT ItJC S  the provincial Ministry of the Envi- WOfk'  ronment (MOE) lhat allows the couple to doctor non-migratory birds and small mammals.  "We work closely with (MOE) conservation officer Doug  Pierce," Davy said, "and he handles all the larger animals.  Aside from the permits, however, the Davys receive no government funding.  "We rely on our own resources and the occasional donations  (including volunteer labour and materials) to pay for the specialized care and diets required by injured or orphaned wildlife," He  said.  The couple became involved in wildlife rehabilitation in the  mid-1970s and are founding members of the advisory hoard of the  Wildlife Rescue Association of BC; Clint is a past-president and  Irene the past-secretary.  In addition, Clint is the president of Wildlife Rehabilitalors Network of BC, and Director of Ihe BC Waterfowl Society. Both  Clint and Irene are members of the International Rehabilitation  Council.  The Davys are both heavily involved in the Coast's SPCA  efforts as Clint is the SPCA Inspector and the director of the  provincial SPCA organization.  Since beginning their own rehabilitation work in 1979, the  Davys have taken in and cared for over 18(H) different wildlife  cases, encompassing everything from baby hummingbirds to Great  Blue Herons and Golden Eagles.  "It's become our life's work," Irene Davy said.  The couple presently have the materials to build a much needed  squirrel exercise cage that will also help in the "slow release"  method of returning animals to the wild which have become used  to human care.  There is need of volunteer labour to build the cage, however,  and anyone interested in volunteering time and effort can reach Ihe  Davys at 886-4989.

Crowded conditions and a projected operating deficit of $150,000 for  1992 have led the District of Sechelt,  in a letter received at the January 9  SCRD board meeting, to acknowledge "the costs  to operate (the arena) at full capacity a.id lo  upgrade the building and equipment to minimum  standards is beyond the means of the municipality-"  The letter points out that a large number of  those using the facility come from outside the district and calls on the SCRD lo pay its fair share.  "Without the participation of the regional district in funding its proportionate share of operating  and capital costs," the letter read, "(Sechelt) will  have to consider closing or significantly curtailing  ice arena operations."  Combined with the Sechell letter were letters  from the Sunshine Coast Figure Skating Club  (SCFSC) and Ihe Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey  Association (SCMHA), both of which echoed  Sechell's plea.  In responding to the letters, Director Jim Gurney made a motion that went beyond directly  addressing the concerns for the arena.  He motioned that a letter be returned to Sechelt  stating, "The Sunshine Coast Regional District  favours the devolution of all local government  functions on the Sunshine Coast under  one authority, as opposed to the piecemeal passing off of individual liabilities to the regional district."  Gurney said his motion went  beyond dealing with just the arena  because "it was time to look at all  these problems on a Coast-wide  basis."  He did refer to the arena, though,  saying it was unfair to imply the  regional district didn't pay enough  toward recreation. He pointed out that the SCRD  taxes its constituents to the lune of $613,000 for  recreational facilities on the Coast, an amount the  municipalities don't contribute to.  He defended the SCRD actions toward Ihe  arena to date, saying the regional district had made  funding offers in the past which would have come  from regional taxes from areas incorporated into  Sechelt when the district restructured in 1986.  "The district didn't accept that offer," Gurney  recounted, "Sechelt restructured and took in much  of the tax base we were offering."  Gibsons Mayor Eric Small wanted clarification  on the overall intent of Gurney's call for one  authority to oversee Coast-wide government services "Does this include public utilities (and  everything else)?" Small asked.  Gumey responded affirmatively but was elusive  as to how that goal could be brought about.  "I think the details will unfold in the next few  weeks," Gurney said.  Despite the intrigue, the motion passed unanimously.  Tires Stolen From  Vehicle at Trout Lake  Sechelt RCMP request the  public's assistance with an  investigation into the damage to  and theft of wheels from a vehicle on Dec. 27, 1991. The vehicle, a yellow Honda Accord,  was left on the southbound side  of Highway 101 just south of  Trout Lake by the owner  because of mechanical difficulties.  Between 4 pm and 10 pm,  several of the vehicle's windows were broken and the  tires/rims were stolen. Any person who may have information  regarding this matter is requested to call the Sechelt RCMP or  Crimestoppers.  Search and Rescue  Brings Climbers Home  Safely  On Jan. 5, 1992 two local  youths got stuck after dark on  the face of Soames Hill. Search  and Rescue were called to the  scene along wih Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department. The  two youths were rescued after  over four hours on the rockface  of the hill.  The assistance of GVFD and  Sunshine Coast Search and Rescue members Vic and Eileen  Bonaguro, Fred Gazeley, Gordon Skertchly, Gordon Todd,  Mike Pearson and Kelly Hatfull  is greatly appreciated.

Joel Johnstone photo  'Environmentally friendly' proposal from  Specialty Wood Products raises concerns  by Jane Seyd  Can one environmentally-  friendly proposal cause more  environmental problems than it  will solve? That was one of the  questions grappled with recently by Sechelt's planning committee.  As a result, an application  from Specialty Wood Products  for a lease on crown lands near  Chapman Creek will likely not  receive the blessing hoped for  from Sechelt council because of  environmental concerns in Ihe  area.  The company has applied to  the Ministry of Lands for a 30-  year lease on nine hectares in  the area, to be used for "environmentally friendly" developments in wood composting and  processing of wood waste and  for electrical power generation.  But Sechell council will likely recommend the ministry  refuse the application because  of several reasons, including the  potential environmental impacts  of the proposal in terms of  recreational use of Chapman  Creek and its valley, and air  pollution, including the problems this could create for planes  flying out of Sechelt airport.  In discussion, committee  members suggested the company look to possible alternate  sites in the area, which are  already zoned for industrial  activitv and are a greater distance from the sensitive Chapman Creek area. However a  spokesman for Specialty Wood  Products disagreed with the  committee's suggestion, saying  the land in question was near to  existing wood waste from both  Speciality Wood Products and  Suncoast Lumber which gave  the company a chance for economics of scale. "It's true there  may be industrial land all over  the place," he said, "but we're  all realists and can see that  would be horrifically expensive." He added that on the current property occupied by the  company there was no room lo  grow, and without economics of  scale, the company would have  trouble slaying economically  viable.  Currently, Specialty Wood  Products processes weed wood  into products like hardwood  floors, and paneling, are in such  high demand that they are being  shipped to Germany.  The proposed expansion to  deal wilh wood waste represented a "pro-active" environmental  opportunity to deal with waste  generated by the two wood  companies, said the spokesman  for the company. Processing  equipment would be built to  "state of the arts" capacity, he  said, using natural gas as a  booster fuel.  Committee members agreed  the intent of the idea was good,  but said it would be "prudent"  for the company to look into  alternate locations.  Crimestoppers Month  January is Crimestoppers  Month.

Hwy. 101,  Valdy packs 'em in at Raven's Cry  An area favourite proves he is still a popular draw for Coast audiences  Thanks to the Walersyde Folke group, the Raven's Cry Theatre  was once again filled lo capacity on Jan. 4 fot the concert by Valdy  which turned out to he a fine professional performance by a really  nice guy.  This man is another Pete Seeger with a talent seldom found  these days. With only his guitar for accompaniment, Valdy - like  Seeger ��� was able to enthral an audience for two hours. No backup  group needed here.  Instrumental!)' and vocally, Valdy did it well all by hitaself. His  relaxed, friendly stage style made the audience feel that he was  personal friend, despite the fact that he is one of Canada's top performers and winner of two Juno Awards. He writes most of his  own material, all of which has something important to say. Valdy  was even called upon lo sing in Toronto for Prince Charles and  Princess Diana at a concert in their honour. He is a good buddy of  Peter Gzoski of CBC's Momingside show, and spoke of the lime  he wenl to Yellowknife to sing as a guest at the annual golf tournament hosted by Gzoski to promote literacy. Por this occasion,  Valdy wrote a song called 'Read Below the Lines', a song about  the joys of reading.  No mailer what the occasion might be. Valdy seems able to jusl  sit him down and write a song. Like the one he wrote called  'Scruffy Dudes', referring to the lime Willie Nelson and Wailin'  Jennings were turned away from Point Grey Golf Club in Vancouver as "not suitably dressed".  Not many oerformers of such high calibre are willing lo share  the stage with other artists, but Valdy was delighted to introduce  local musicians Tom Richardson and Helen Schafer, Tom playing  bagpipes and hammer dulcimer and Helen on guitar, which was a  most enjoyable interlude.  At one point in the concert Valdy had the dreaded experience of  a broken guitar siring. When this happeivs it usually means a break  in the program while a new string is installed. Not so with Valdy.  Like the trooper he is, he proceeded to change the string, while  singing a lilting 'Mountain Dew' number unaccompanied. Then,  when the re-stringing was completed, he carried on with the song  which had been interrupted by the break. This was quite brilliant  and greatly appreciated.  All too soon this show came to an end, but not before a great  selection of favourite folk songs, which included 'Blowin' in the  Wind', 'Early Morning Rain", 'If I Had a Hammer', etc.  Valdy shared the stage with local folk musician Tom  Richardson on the hammer dulcimer during his recent  concert at the Raven's Cry. Ruth Forrester photo.  Still not satisfied, the audience demanded an encore, and  although Valdy must have been quite exhausted after such a full  performance, he obligingly came back with another couple of numbers, much to the joy of Ihe enthusiastic audience.  For those of you who missed this concert. Let's hope that Valdy  will manage to get back to the Sunshine Coast for another concert  in the near future. I know that he will have a full house again.

His name's Doc  Corey and he's got one of the  biggest collections of old jazz  records you ever saw. Some  damn rare stuff."  "How did you find out about  this?"  "I'm not kidding you. 1 was  getting a tooth Tilled and somehow we got talking about  music. Well, he took me in the  back of his joint and showed me  what he has. I couldn't believe  it. Tons of great stuff from the  20s, 30s, and 40s - Basie,  Ellington, Goodman - you name  it. 1 was his last patient so he  closed up the office. He got a  couple of jugs of wine and sat  around for hours listening to his  platters. Stuff I haven't heard  for years. I'll tell you, it was a  gas!"  "I'll have to meet this guy."  "No problem. He's asked me  to come back tomorrow afternoon and bring my sax with me.  You want to come along I'll  introduce you."  The next day I take Elmer up  on his offer. We split on half a  gallon of the cheap fortified  wine Corey evidently favours  and head for his digs. The dentist is expecting us. He's a small  man about SO with glasses and  thinning red hair. There is  something odd about his eyes  that 1 can't quite put my finger  on. They are overbright;  strangely penetrating. But he is  cordial enough. Elmer makes  the introductions and we follow  Doc Corey lo his sanctum-sanctorum.  The small apartment is  sparsely furnished - an old  leather setlee, a couple of shabby armchairs, a kitchen table  tattooed with cigarette bums, a  fridge, a grubby oil stove, but  there arc some unique aspects  about it. The walls are plastered  with old concert posters and  signed photographs of various  jazz stalwarts.  At one end of the room  reposes the bait that has lured us  here - an electric phonograph on  a small stand and over two  dozen wooden butter boxes  crammed with 78 records.  "Told you he had a gang of  them," Elmer says with a grin  of anticipation.  Corey busies himself with  the arm of the record player. "I  always use bamboo needles," he  confides. "They're only good  for three or four plays but they  don't wear out the grooves like  the steel ones do."  Bamboo needles! This guy is  a real collector!

Local art in the program will  also be displayed in the lobby of the Raven's Cry Theatre for the next several months.  Jane Seyd photo.  Local 'art rental' works to  hang at the Raven's Cry  Giving people an  awareness of the  Art Centre's art  rental program  byJwwStyd  Patrons of the Raven's Cry  will now get a special bonus  when they attend upcoming  events at the theatre - a chance  to check out new work displayed by local Sunshine Coast  artists.  As part of the Arts Centre's  "art rental" program, paintings  and drawings by local people  will be displayed in the lobby of  the Raven's Cry for the next  several months. The idea is to  expose the art to residents who  may not usually visit the Arts  Centre or other Coast galleries,  says Janice McFegan,  spokesperson for the centre. It  also lets people know about the  centre's art rental program, she  says, which is alive and kicking.  This display at the Raven's  Cry will include about 15 paintings and is expected to stay up  for the next three months.  "Art rental" is a program  begun by the centre last year,  following the lead of galleries  and arts centres in several other  municipalities on the Lower  Mainland. Essentially, the program allows people to "try out"  a piece of work by renting it for  several months al a fixed percentage of the selling price,  rather than buying it outright.  This makes the work available  to people who otherwise would  not be able to afford the full  price of the piece, said McFegan. "If they don't have the  money for a $600 work, they  may still be able to pay $24 a  month - that's less than $1 a  day," she said. If the customer  later decides to buy the work,  the cost of rental is taken off the  price.  Art rental also allows customers to change the art in their  homes periodically, or to add a  unique element to settings for a  special occasion, says McFegan.  ��� Usually, art rental is held on  the first Tuesday of each month  at the Arts Centre, when works  available for rental are displayed.  The pieces are chosen by  volunteers from Ihe centre, who  will typically select a couple of  drawings or paintings from the  studios of each local artist they  visit.  The rental cost of the art is  four petcetit of the selling price  Going Away  on Vacation?  Your Secret's  Safe With Us  Leave your rare* at home wilh us.

Pieces must be rented for a  minimum of three months at a  time. Two-thirds of the money  goes to the artist and one-third  goes towards the building fund  for the Arts Centre.  In addition to visual art,  sculpture is also available lor  rental.  Generally, the same customers come back to rent pieces  throughout the year, says  McFegan. "We have one customer who rents four or five  pieces," she says.  Each month, about 50-60  pieces are displayed during the  art rental on Tuesday. Of these,  about 15 works are usually rented out and between 2-5 pieces  are eventually sold.  Eventually, with the expansion to the Arts Centre building,  McFegan says she hopes to  have one room where works  available for art rental will be  displayed all month, as they are  in some other galleries and centres.  Artist Peter Paul Ochs, who  has two paintings displayed in  the current art rental at the centre, says artists usually have  mixed feelings about such programs.  It's good to have the exposure and to be appreciated by  the customers who rent the art,  he said, but with several pieces  "floating" from place lo place il  means "they're not really gone"  and artists must still keep an eye  out for them.  There's also Ihe danger of  damage to the work in moving  it around, he says and "it's usually the artist who's stuck with  whatever happens."  "Artists prefer to sell outright or dispose of it somehow,"  he says, "but lhat doesn't mean  it's not going to be the hottest  thing on the Coast.  "If half of everything is rented out and those pieces which  are rent out are bought because  the people got to like them and  they want to keep them, that is  ihe ultimate test," he says.  Ken Dlttirch, spokesman for  the Raven's Cry Theatre, says  the theatre society is happy to  provide some exposure for local  artists. "The theatre is in fact a  community theatre for everybody," he says, "Whatever we  can do to support other art  forms, we'll do."  There is enough spacing and  breaks in the lobby to allow the  art to be displayed without  clashing with the Native art  already hanging in the theatre,  he says. "I'd like to have more  than No Smoking signs in the  lobby."

Smokers urged to quit  during cold turkey week  If you are a smoker who wants to quit, or if you have Iried lo quit  before and didn't make it. give yourself another chance during  National Non-Smoking Week. Jan 20 lo 26.  It takes some perseverance and willpower to overcome the psychological and physical addiction of nicotine. Most people try several  times before they finally break the habit, but it can be done Millions  of Canadians have joined the ranks of non-smokers over the past 25  years: in 1966, 49 percent of adult Canadians were regular smokers;  today only 31 percent of Canadians smoke.  A major benefit of quitting is the improvement to your health.  Immediately upon quitting, you will find that you breathe more freely  and your sense of smell and taste improves. After a year of not smoking, the risk of heart attack begins to drop; after 10 years it's about  the same as lhat of someone who has never smoked.  If you think you need help to quit, the Sunshine Coast organizers  of National Non-Smoking Week will have booths with infonuation  set up in both Trial Bay and Sunnycrest Malls on Jan. 17  Our Gift Gallery in  Gibsons Landing  will be closed from  Sunday, Jan. 12 to  Sunday, Jan. 19  for holidays.

Joel Johnstone photo.  on the rocks  by Stuart ItniMt  Looking for something lo do  Thursday night? Nothing good  on the tube? Excitement can  now be found at either the Gibsons or Sechelt branches of the  Royal Canadian Legion.  Fierce, cliff hanging competition between four evenly  matched snooker teams has  become a Thursday night standard at the legions as the recently formed Legion Snooker  League draws players and spectators from around the Coast.  The four rival teams, two  based in each legion, take turns  traversing the Coast to play one  another, seeking glory and the  greatest point accumulation in  the drive for the end of the season championship.  According to the president  and founder of the league, Len  Homenchuck, the four teams,  the Cruisers and Ihe Sharks  from Sechelt, and the Knights  and Hustlers from Gibsons,  have been competing for the  oast four months and there is  talk of expansion of the teams.  Homenchuck said it would  be necessary lo find an additional playing location if there  was expansion because four  teams was about all the present  two legions could comfortably  handle.  "Each legion plays a total of  nine games per evening,"  Homenchuck said, "and each  team consists of six players and  three spares."  He added, "It would be great  if the Roberts Creek Legion had  a couple of teams."  The teams square off al 7 pm  Thursday's and interested players or spectators are asked to  contact the sports chairmen of  the respective legions.  by Harry Turner  Welcome back from the holiday. It is good lo be back and curling  again. This weekend, the Mixed Open Bonspiel takes place. This is  an important event at our club every year and is usually oversubscribed. Teams from all over the Lower Mainland will he here. These  learns will pump a lot of business into our little community and add a  lot of excitement at the local club.  This week, when we talk about equipment, we will talk about  rocks. When it conies lo curling equipment, luckily for Ihe curler, the  most expensive pieces are provided by the club. Where once in Ihe  not too distant past, the individual curler supplied his or her own  rocks, the club now supplies these very expensive items, which are  uniform in size and weight and created from a very tough type of  granite. The stonetnaker's machines and manual skills produce hundreds of sets of identical stones accurate lo one half ounce and polished lo splendid uniformity. Slones weight in at 44 pounds (19.%  kilograms).  An acceptable curling stone must have qualities thai resist abrasion, he tough, dense, resilianl, uniform in colour and non-absorbant.  These hefty stones are crafted from chip resistant granite found only  in Scotland and Wales. No other granite has yet been found which  meets the requirements like this rock.  When water is used to clean the ice, this moisture can cause flaking, chipping or even large holes in Ihe slone. After Ihe stones are  polished, a one and a half inch striking band is created around the  outside circumference. This prevents scarring of the outer surfaces  which would result if stones collided polish to polish.  Each side of a curling stone has a concave area commonly referred  to as the cup. The edge of the cup is appropriately named the rim and  it is on this thin running edge lhat Ihe stone actually travels. The running edge of the stone is coarse like the striking band. Il is this rough  running edge lhat gives the rock its ability lo turn or curl.  With constant play, the undersurface of a stone may be expected lo  last about five years. Usually at the end of its second year of play, the  rock is turned over and the top becomes the running surface. At this  point, the bolt is removed, and the handle is placed on the other side  of the stone. This lakes place until the under edge of the rock  becomes smooth. At intervals the rock must be sharpened using a  special machine operated by certain curling specialty houses. Once  Ihe rock loses its edge, it will curl very little.  As the rock loses the resistance of the edge which bites into the  ice, the rock loses its ability to dig in al the far end of Ihe sheet. It  therefore becomes difficult to judge the weight needed lo send the  rock to the house.

The Anatomy Colouring  Hook" by Wynii Kapit and  Lawrence M Bison, Ph.D.  This is a co-operative venture with HarperCollins (formerly HarperRowe),"  Bleackley said, "It lets us use  some of their copyright material  and is designed lo continue  anatomy instruction from where  (The Anatomy Colouring Book  1 leaves off."  Lunula Bleackley added,  however, that HarperCollins  hasn't helped with ihe funding  for the four year project. So the  Bleackley's have received  financial assistance from the  Sunshine Coast Business Development Commission to hire  local help.  She said they also received  research money from the federal  government but otherwise the  project was financed by Folk-  stone Design.  Ihe  Bleackley  family  with  "Anatomist".  Bleackley said the new pro-  grain could ultimately be used  by K-12 schools, by universities as an instruction tool, or by  anyone needing an easy, accurate view of the human body.  She said it was simple  enough for almost any age  group above the age of four lo  use, saying,"You don't even  need to be able lo read to use it,  you can simply point to something on Ihe screen (using an on  screen device called a "mouse")  and a voice tells you what part  of ihe body you have selected."  ��� Bleackley added that it was  also possible to record personal  notes on any area of the program by using a diskette.  "We're working about a year  their  new computer  program,  Stuart Burnside pluiio.  ahead of current technology,"  Scott Bleackley said.  The Bleackleys will attend a  MacWorld Expo in San Francisco, California Jan. 13-15 to display their new product but have  already had success with world  demands to view "Anatomist"  since the program was completed on Christmas Eve.  "We've shipped about 100  copies since the first of the  year," Bleackley said, "We're  going to have to re-press."  Some of the present interest  in Anatomist comes from the  US, Japan and much of Europe,  wilh Canada representing a  smaller portion of the potential  market.

Open for all  ages.  by Jane Seyd  While Sechelt residents and  businesses will see their phone  bills go up in the month ahead,  everybody on the Coast can also  look forward to a higher bill  from BC Hydro.  Effective January 1, Hydro  rates increased by an average of  1.64 percent across the  province, after approval from  the BC Utilities Commission.  According to statements  from Hydro, the increase is  needed to cover costs of a 15.1  percent increase in water rental  charges which the company  pays to the provincial government in order 10 use Ihe  resource to generate electricity.  On December 20, the government lilted a seven-year freeze  on increases in water rales paid  hy Hydro.  The increase in rates will add  an average of 79 cents a month,  or $9.51 a year lo bills paid by  homeowners. The increase will  add $1.90 monthly or $22.85  annually to the average billing  for small business.  Meanwhile, Hydro will  begin holding public hearings in  Vancouver before the BC Utilities Commission on a proposed  "rale restructuring". If the  restructuring goes ahead, it will  mean the more electricity is  used by a customer, the higher  the rate paid will be. Currently,  rates drop with higher volumes  of electricity consumed.  Sechelt phone  charges increased  by Jane Seyd  Sechelt residents can look forward to a slightly higher phone bill  this month, following a "rate regrouping" hy BC Tel which will come  into effect January 15.  The change will mean a monthly increase of up to 60 cents for  basic service to residential customers and up to $2.55 for businesses.  Long-distance rates will not be affected.  The rates are being raised because of the increased number of telephones on the Coast which people can call from Sechelt without long  distance charges. Because of Sechelt's central location on the Coast,  residents can call both to 883 numbers in Pender Harbour and  Egmont, and to 886 and 884 numbers in Gibsons and Port Mellon  without paying long distance rates. However, long distance charges  apply to calls made from one end of the Coast to the other, such as a  cail between Gibsons and Pender Harbour.  Phone rates are based on formulas which take into account both  the number of lines customers can call without paying long distance  charges, and the distances involved in calling "local" numbers which  are outside the customer's own exchange.  According to statements from BC Tel, there are now more than  5700 access lines in the Sechelt exchange and additional 6700 lines  which can be reached from Sechelt between Port Mellon and Egmont.  All of this means growth in other communities on the Coast within  the past few years, as well as within the district, has contributed to the  rate increase for Sechelt.  Rates in other areas on the Coast will not be affected by Ihe  change.  According to Norm Blain of BC Tel, the system used by the phone  company to determine rates is used throughout North America. Each  year, between 12-14 communities have their phone rates increased,  said Blain. This year, Powell River and Westview on the upper Sunshine Coast will also face higher phone charges.  In broader terms, however, phone rates for communities in the  Lower Mainland are often significantly higher than for other places  like the Sunshine Coast because of the number of lines which can be  reached in Vancouver without calling long distance.  The last lime phone rates went up in Sechelt was in 1977.  According lo Blain, CRTC regulations require that the company  raise phone rates as the number of "local" calling lines increases.

Setting a goal for yourself or  others? How about donating the materials and building a small log  cabin giftshop lor a worthy cause'.' Thai cause is the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, located al the old Halfmoon Ba) ELementary School,  5783 Trout Lake Road.  Joanne Dickeson runs this centre on her own and does a fantastic  job looking after injured wild animals. Bui she also runs out of  monev So I had an idea. Joanne could generate some income hy running a wildlife rehabilitation giftshop. selling items made on ihe Sunshine Coast.  These items could range from fridge magnets, wood carvings,  buinperslickers. ceramics, up to paintings, etc. My request is geared  towards anyone who cares for our environment. Wildlife plays a big  part in this and Joanne needs help. If everyone were to donate for  example some logs, or money (tax receipts will be issued) to buy  logs, then the giftshop could be a small log cabin. It would be great to  have the store finished and open before the tourist season starts this  summer.  1 think we can do it! There's lots of work to be done and lots of  help needed on permits, foundations, wiring, etc. (Maybe with a hand  from BC Hydro!) We need help with building supplies and people  willing lo participate in building any aspect of the shop. Volunteers  are also needed in the area of canvasing, advertising, co-ordinating  and organizing.  To all our artists and craftspeople on the Coast, please consider  donating some of your work as initial stock for ihe giftshop. (Your  donations are always welcome for raffle prizes, etc.) We could make  wildlife calendars and cards from pictures taken al the centre. Help in  any form is always welcome.  Maybe retailers could set aside one day lo help our wildlife rehabilitation giftshop and donate a percentage of your sales. The Blue  Shoe Ceramics Studio al 4258 Francis Peninsula Road, Madeira Park  will be pleased to start the campaign. On Saturday, February 1, from  11 to 4 we will donate 30 per cent of the proceeds from anything you  buy from our studio to the wildlife rehabilitation giftshop. Please  mark this day on your calendars.  There are many wonderful people on the Coasl who really care  and show respect for nature and our animals. Jusl a little of your time  or a small donation can make such a difference.  Bowen ferry captain  handed suspension  BC Ferries announced  recently it has completed its  investigation into the Howe  Sound Queen's crash into the  dock al Horseshoe Bay Dec. 9.  In a statement to the press,  the corporation said that when  the incident took place on the  run from Bowen Island to  Horseshoe Bay, the ship's captain was familiarizing another  officer in the handling of the  vessel.  According to BC Ferries, the  ship had made a number of  dockings that day with no problem. Bui on this approach,  increased revs on the front propellers, which was in the wrong  position, caused Ihe vessel to  increase speed.  The captain then took over  from the trainee and tried to  correct the problem by pushing  the ferry away from the dock.  But these actions weren't done  in sufficient time to prevent the  crash.  Based on the investigation,  the captain who was operating  Ihe Howe Sound Queen at the  lime received a len-day suspension.  According to Maureen Morris of the corporation, the claims  department at BC Ferries has  also been in touch with all the  people who reported injuries in  the accident.
